Weekend Assault In New Ulm 14 Feb 13

A 23-year-old Owatonna man faces felony assault and other charges in Brown County Court for an early morning incident in New Ulm this past weekend. Police were called to a residence at the New Ulm Mobile Village early Sunday morning on a report that intoxicated individuals were refusing to leave the home. A person at the residence had apparently been assaulted and suffered numerous physical injuries allegedly caused by Joshua Francis Weller, who was later located during a traffic stop. He had a blood-alcohol level nearly twice the legal limit at the time, and was taken into custody. He was charged with assault and burglary on Monday, and remains in custody in the Brown County Jail with bail set at $75,000. The arrest violated his probation as well.
