Newman, Lowrie, and Salle make court appearances

Darrin Lee Newman is accused of wrapping both his hands around a woman's neck and throwing her into a chair at a home on the 1000 block of North Ewing Street.

Charging documents allege Newman got into an argument with his victim, became angry, yelled at her and then tried to strangle her.

Investigators noted the victim had bruising to her arm, chest, and neck.

Newman is charged with felony strangulation. Bond was set at $20,000.

Prosecutors allege that John A. Lowrie struck a person several times in the head with a hammer.

Charging documents say Lowrie approached the victim on Sunday morning at a residence on Strandberg Drive, asking to borrow a lighter.

The person told Lowrie he was trying to go to sleep and to leave him alone. Lowrie allegedly returned to the victim’s room holding a hammer.

The victim allegedly hit Lowrie, and Lowrie then struck the victim several times in the head with the hammer, causing a skull fracture, according to court documents.

The victim and Lowrie ended up in Lowrie’s room where Lowrie is alleged to have continued to strike the victim with the hammer.

Lowrie is charged with felony assault with a weapon. Bond was set at $20,000.

Nickolas Edward Salle has been charged with assaulting a nine-month-old child earlier this month.

Salle was seen via video Tuesday in Lewis & Clark County Justice Court.

Charging documents state that bruising began to appear on the nine-month-old victim after Salle was left alone with the child for more than an hour on December 16th.

Investigators say doctors reported the bruising – appearing on the child’s right cheek and continuing up past his right temple – was not accidental.

Salle, 23, reportedly told investigators the child might have struck his head against a crib.

While Salle denied having any anger issues, officers observed at least three doors at Salle’s residence were damaged by punching or kicking.

Bond for Salle was set at $50,000.
