A Stewartville man was arrested Thursday night after Olmsted County Sheriff's deputies say he pulled a gun on another man and assaulted him.
Shaun Whitney, 24, is charged in Olmsted County District Court with second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon and terroristic threats, both of which are felonies. He is also charged with misdemeanor counts of domestic assault and fifth-degree assault.
He made his first appearance in court on the charges Friday morning when Judge Pamela King ordered Whitney released on conditions including that he not use of posses any firearms or dangerous weapons and that he has no contact with the alleged victims in the case.
The Olmsted County Sheriff's Office received a report of a domestic assault shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday in the 2000 block of Heron Drive Northwest.
Deputies met with a 21-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman who alleged that Whitney assaulted them and pointed a firearm at the 21-year-old man. The two had gone to Whitney's residence to drop off some of his belongings.
Deputies then set up a perimeter around Whitney's residence and called him. He reportedly came out willingly and was taken into custody.
Olmsted County Sheriff's Capt. Scott Behrns said Whitney suffered four scratches on his face from the 24-year-old woman, who attempted to intervene when Whitney was allegedly assaulting the 21-year-old man.
