Man Charged In Attack On Girlfriend At Homeless Shelter
JORDAN (AP) - Authorities have charged a Twin Cities man who they say hit his pregnant girlfriend in the head with a gun at a church homeless shelter.
Johnathan Herring is charged with felony assault, domestic assault and making terroristic threats following the attack at Hope Lutheran Church in Jordan on Saturday.
Authorities say they found Herring the next day hiding in a dryer in a Minneapolis home after locating an acquaintance's stolen car at the residence.
Police say the attack stemmed from an argument Herring and the woman had two days earlier in which he accused her of cheating. She says she is five months pregnant with his child.
Herring is being held in the Scott County jail on $500,000 bond. Online jail records didn't indicate an attorney.
