      Suspect held on felonious assault charge

      An Indiana man is jailed in Gogebic County after allegedly threatening a family in Marenisco Township.

      State Police from the Wakefield Post report that the 42-year-old suspect from Laporte, Indiana had approached the family from a wooded area located near their home on Sunday. The man was carrying a large stick and made threats of physical violence against the adult female.

      At that time, the woman called the authorities, and the suspect returned to the woods.

      When troopers contacted the man, they report he was making rambling statements about Satan and religion. He was taken into custody without incident and charged with felonious assault. His name is being withheld pending arraignment.

      Felonious assault is punishable by up to four years in prison.
