COLDWATER, Mich. (WOOD) — A Coldwater man has been charged with assault after allegedly shooting a woman with an air rifle, injuring her.
Richard Stolte was arraigned Tuesday on charges of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, felony firearm and third-offense domestic violence, the Branch County Prosecutor’s Office said.
Prosecutors say police were sent to the hospital on Oct. 12 after a woman arrived with “significant injuries.” They soon determined she had been hit by pellets from an air rifle.
The woman remained in the hospital Tuesday.
Stolte’s bond was set at $250,000.
