Prosecutors say a 27-year-old Missoula man threatened to stab and shoot neighbors who intervened after his partner said he attacked her.
Sean Anthony Krebs had his bail set at $15,000 during an appearance Tuesday in Missoula County Justice Court after he was charged with felony assault with a weapon and misdemeanor partner assault.
According to an affidavit, sheriff’s deputies were called to Chandler Street on Monday for a disturbance. A neighbor reported that she, her son and two of his friends were outside when a woman came over and asked for help after allegedly being assaulted by Krebs, her partner.
The neighbor told the woman to come inside and lock the door. The neighbor then went to talk with Krebs, who allegedly told her that she needed to mind her own business.
He pulled out a knife and threatened to kill her, her son and his friends, the affidavit stated, saying he would cut their throats. The neighbor reported that Krebs at one point said he would go grab his gun and “just start shooting because he’s from California and that’s how they do it.”
Krebs was standing next to a vehicle when he was found by sheriff's deputies and told them he didn't know its owner. The vehicle belonged to his partner. He said he had left the home after an argument and that the neighbor, her son and his friends tried to fight him.
Krebs' partner told deputies he had started drinking and became angry, according to charging papers. When she tried to call his mother for help, he grabbed the phone and threw it before punching her in the face.
