Nathan David Rolfs has been charged with two counts of felony assault with a weapon after he allegedly brandished a crowbar at two teens.
According to court documents, two people told police that they saw Rolfs "chasing several juveniles with a crowbar," and the witnesses recorded cell phone video of the incident.
One of the responding police officers identified Rolfs based on prior contact with him.
The video showed Rolfs running up to the two teens with a three-foot metal crowbar in his hand in a raised position, "ready to strike one of the juveniles with it," according to court documents.
Both teens were able to run away and were not hit by the crowbar.
The police officer contacted the two teens, who said that they were afraid and thought that Rolfs was going to hit them with the crowbar.
According to the Montana Department of Corrections, Rolfs has convictions in Cascade County for criminal endangerment and burglary, and is currently on parole.
Court documents also note that Rolfs has two partner/family member assault convictions, and two instances of probation violations.
Prosecutors requested that bond for Rolfs be set at $15,000.
The legal definition of ASSAULT in Montana is: "A person commits the offense of aggravated assault if the person purposely or knowingly causes serious bodily injury to another or purposely or knowingly, with the use of physical force or contact, causes reasonable apprehension of serious bodily injury or death in another."
