A Mott man faces seven felonies as a result of an alleged domestic disturbance the day after Christmas.

Shane Quinn, 33, is charged with three counts of terrorizing, three counts of aggravated assault and one count of abuse or neglect of a child according court records. A misdemeanor charge of assault was dismissed according to records.

Quinn faces charges after he allegedly attacked his girlfriend by throwing a steak knife at her, repeatedly punching her in the face as he sat on her, throwing her down the stairs and slamming her face into a table, according to a report from Hettinger County Sheriff Sarah Warner.

Quinn’s girlfriend was holding their 1-year old daughter when allegedly threw her down a flight of stairs, resulting in bruising of the infant.

The complaint also alleged that Quinn pointed a rifle at his girlfriend’s father and said “See you in another life.”

The report also indicated that Quinn put the pistol in his own mouth in front of his girlfriend and her father and attempted to pull the trigger.

The firearm did not discharge in either incident.

Quinn made his initial appearance in Southwest Judicial District court on Dec. 29 with Judge William Hearauf presiding.

According to court documents, Quinn has retained Kevin McCabe as counsel and his preliminary hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. Feb. 5 in front of Judge Dann Greenwood.

The felonies Quinn is charged with include three counts of Class C terrorizing, three counts of Class C aggravated assault, and one count of a Class B abuse or neglect of a child.

Class C felonies can carry a maximum sentence of up to five years imprisonment and up to $5,000 in fines or both. Class B felonies can carry a maximum sentence of up to 10 years imprisonment and put to $10,000 in fines or both.
