Trevor Bourgeois, Sr., has been charged with felony intimidation in Great Falls.
On Tuesday, January 16, police officers went to the Great Falls Clinic Emergency Department for a report of a five-month old child with suspicious injuries.
Officers saw that the child had multiple scratches on his head and legs that medical staff said were "suspicious." The child was removed from the custody of his parents and placed in kinship care.
On Thursday, January 18, Bourgeois made threatening phone calls to the kinship caregiver, according to court documents. Bourgeois reportedly told the caregiver that he was going to come over and start killing people until he got his son back.
Court documents state that other children in the home heard the threat and were alarmed, and the caregiver took the threat seriously, as Bourgeois has been violent in the past.
Bourgeois was found in the vicinity of the caregiver's home.
Court documents note that Bourgeois has convictions for obstructing a peace officer; criminal possession of dangerous drugs; and theft.
Prosecutors requested that bond for Bourgeois be set at $15,000.
He is charged with one count of felony intimidation.
