Man arrested for trying to run over woman in Minot

MINOT, N.D. – Minot Police arrested a man Monday night on accusations he repeatedly tried to run a woman over with his truck.

Prosecutors have charged 52-year-old Mark Anhorn with terrorizing and reckless endangerment.

According to a criminal affidavit, the victim told investigators she was cleaning out a garage in southeast Minot with another man shortly after 8 p.m., when Anhorn approached her and yelled obscenities at her.

She said Anhorn got into his vehicle and left, but returned moments later, and drove at her three times, forcing her to dodge out of the way.

The victim said Anhorn left when she got a hold of a phone and began calling 911.

Anhorn remains in custody in Minot and is scheduled to make his initial court appearance Tuesday afternoon.
