Prosecutor Charges Anglemyer with 9 Counts

January 31, 2013

  02/01/13 Charges were filed in Marshall Superior Court I against Chase Tanner Anglemyer of Wakarusa on Thursday.

The Marshall County Prosecutor’s office is charging Alglemyer with attempted murder a class A felony, battery by means of a deadly weapon a class D felony, battery resulting in serious bodily injury a class C felony, strangulation a class D felony, criminal confinement a class B felony, burglary a class B felony, kidnapping a class A felony, robbery a class C felony and interference with the reporting of a crime a class A misdemeanor.  His bond was set at $500,000.

The charges stem from an incident Wednesday in Bremen when it is alleged that Anglemyer went to a residence in the 200 block of South Washington Street, the residence of his x-girlfriend about 10:30 in the morning.  He broke into the house through a second floor window, located the victim who was hiding in a bedroom and dragged her from the residence.  He then forced her with a knife and a large screwdriver to run with him to another location and threatened to kill her.  As they were running Anglemyer is alleged to have struck the victim on the head and face with the blunt end of the screwdriver several times.

When the pair arrived at the Woodies Lane apartment he strangled the victim with his hands while out front but stopped when the tenant opened the door. He then said the victim had fallen and needed to use the bathroom.  Once inside he locked the doors and the tenant called 9-1-1.

Bremen Officer Keith Fraine arrived at the apartment and was able to subdue Anglemyer and hand cuff him.  At that point he located the victim who had a cord wrapped around her neck and not breathing.  After removing the cord she began to breath and gained consciousness.  She was transported to a South Bend Hospital and Anglemyer was taken to the Marshall County Jail.
