Helena Police Department reported Thursday the arrest of Korri Galbraith on a felony charge of assault with a weapon on Wednesday.
According to the police report, officers responded to a call shortly before 5 p.m. Wednesday to the vicinity of Bozeman and Montana avenues, where a male was reported to be pointing a weapon at another male.
Witnesses reported that the suspect’s vehicle bore a sign for Unique Apparel, which is located at 1421 Helena Ave.
When officers questioned Galbraith at the Unique Apparel shop, he reportedly denied using any weapon and told officers he had been pursuing a male shoplifter, telling him not to return to the store.
Officers located the victim, who told them he was extremely afraid he would be shot and that a small hand gun had been pointed at his head, according to the report. Witnesses also gave similar statements.
Officers observed what appeared to be knives in the front seat and the outline of a handgun underneath the front seat cover, the report stated.
Galbraith was then arrested. No bond was set due to the felony charge and the vehicle was seized as evidence. On Thursday evening Galbraith was still being held in custody at the Lewis and Clark County Detention Center.
