Upon arriving at the scene, officers found a window right next to the door was broken. Witnesses reportedly said a man fled south on Main Street after punching it in. Officers then saw Aaron Dewaay, 32, of Butte, walking near the corner of Park and Wyoming streets with cuts on his hands. They arrested him for criminal mischief, a misdemeanor.

Dog attack

While walking to the courthouse Tuesday, a police officer saw a woman who was crossing the street get attacked by a dog.

The alleged victim refused to be transported to the hospital for treatment.

  • A wanted man was arrested at Walmart Tuesday afternoon after trying to get a money order. Police said they warned store officials about Raymond Adams, 30, on Monday, telling employees Adams was wanted for walking out of Helena’s pre-release program and that he may come in for a money order. When Adams arrived at Walmart on Tuesday, police were notified. They found Adams in the parking lot of the Happy Endings Casino, where he was arrested.
  • Police arrested a woman for criminal contempt on Tuesday. According to police, a woman called dispatch from the lobby of the police station to report that she’d found a car she’d reported stolen earlier. Police met the woman, Amy Smith, 34, of Butte, at Rosin Brothers Inc., where she showed them the car. Officers determined the vehicle in question was a civil issue and was not really stolen. They then found a $2,000 warrant out of Butte City Court for Smith’s arrest.

Served and arrested

Police served a man a temporary restraining order and arrested him for a partner or family member assault that took place last month. On Tuesday, police went to Rick Jones Way to serve and arrest Cory Parke, 33. Both legal actions are the result of a July 4 disturbance in which police say Parke kicked in a door at a residence, causing minor injuries to the person protected by the temporary restraining order.
