Arrested man facing warrants in Junction City

By The Mercury

Riley County officers arrested a 25-year-old Ogden man early Thursday morning after a BOLO, or “be on the lookout for,” notice was issued by the Junction City Police Department in relation to an early-morning incident in which the man allegedly threatened his estranged wife.

Junction City Police Chief Tim Brown said Charles Hartman is wanted by the department for aggravated assault, kidnapping, aggravated intimidation of a victim and domestic battery, after, Brown said, the department received a report that Hartman allegedly showed up at his estranged wife’s residence and threatened her with a knife.

Brown said Hartman allegedly held her against her will and prevented her from calling the police, before leaving her residence.

Lt. Josh Kyle said Riley County officers made contact with Hartman after being notified and subsequently arrested him on a warrant for failure to appear for a $30 parking ticket at about 3:45 a.m. Thursday.

Hartman is being held at the Riley County Jail without bond, until his transfer to the Junction City Police Department.
