Missoula Police Arrest Man For Threatening His Neighbors With a Knife
Just before 2:00 p.m. on Monday, Missoula Police Officers responded to a disturbance in the 2300 block of Johnson Street. According to Police Public Information Officer Travis Welsh, an intoxicated male was threatening neighbors with a knife.
“While officers were on their way, they were informed that the male had actually left the scene in a vehicle,” Welsh said. “They responded and spoke to complainants at the scene. The complainants confirmed that the male next door, who was later identified as 56-year-old Randy Jangula, had indeed come out of his residence, did produce a knife and threatened them with harm.”
The officers went to an associated location where relatives lived and they located Jangula in the 100 block of Bentley Park Loop. Welsh said Jangula was taken into custody and officers recovered knives during his arrest.
“He was found to be under the influence of an alcoholic beverage,” Welsh said. “He was transported to the Missoula County Jail where he is being held for assault with a weapon, intimidation, partner or family member assault, and possession of dangerous drugs.”
When Jangula arrived at the jail, he was found to be in possession of methamphetamine and a pipe. Jangula is being held for felony intimidation because he allegedly threatened to harm his wife if she called police.
