EEO Public File

Just before one Friday morning, Willmar Police were dispatched to the area of Fairview Cemetery on Gorton Ave Northwest on the report of a possible fight. Officers arrived and spoke to an individual who said that a friend, who had just fled the scene on foot, was suicidal. Officers located the individual, identified as a 17 year old male from Willmar, on Gorton Avenue. When the initial officer attempted to speak with him, the juvenile fled on foot into Fairview Cemetery. The officer followed the juvenile into Fairview Cemetery and, while again attempting to speak with the individual, the juvenile kicked and hit the squad car, jumped partially through the open driver’s window and began to attack the officer in the driver’s seat. The officer and a second responding Willmar Police officer were able to subdue the juvenile using their TASERs. The juvenile was brought to the Prairie Lakes Youth Programs Detention Center. Potential charges include 4th degree assault (assaulting an officer) and criminal damage to property. The officer was not injured. The squad car had some body damage from the juvenile punching it. The Willmar Police Department was assisted by the Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Office.
