Minnetonka man convicted of assault

On May 2, Brenton Robert Weeda, 26, Minnetonka, was convicted of second degree assault with a dangerous weapon.

Little Falls police responded to a report of assault Sept. 18, 2013. The three victims told the officer Weeda and they were drinking together when he became increasingly angry.

The victims said that at one point, Weeda was so angry he left. They followed him outside and tried to calm him down, but he pulled out a knife and extended the blade.

The victims told law enforcement Weeda began making punching and slashing motions with the knife, then threw the knife at them. All three said they were scared and one had been cut when protecting another.

Weeda was located walking down the street. He told officers he had a knife and did take it out while he was with the three victims.

Weeda was sentenced to 27 months in prison, stayed for seven years, and given credit for the 227 days he spent in jail. He was fined $135 and given seven years of supervised probation.
