Stockton man accused of assault with gun (08/05/2014)
By Amelia Wedemeyer
Traffic was rerouted in Stockton for some time on Wednesday after the Winona County Sheriff’s Office, with the assistance of the Minnesota State Patrol, Winona Police Department, Goodview Police Department and Lewiston Ambulance, set up surveillance on a residence and arrested Nickolas James Meyers, 35, of Stockton. Meyers is currently in custody and has been referred to the Winona County Attorney’s office for charges of aggravated tampering with a witness, second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon, terroristic threats and false imprisonment after he allegedly physically assaulted and threatened a 29-year-old female victim. Deputies originally received a call from the victim on Wednesday, July 30, at 2:50 a.m., in which she reported that Meyers had physically assaulted and kept her inside a Stockton residence. The victim said that the incident started on Sunday night or early Monday morning when Meyers, who had been drinking, punched her in the head and told her that “this will be your life now.” The victim told deputies that Meyers then said he would beat her to a “bloody pulp” and then started beating her again. The victim then said that Meyers took out a plastic case containing a gun and told her to put the gun to her head and pull the trigger unless she wanted to get assaulted again. The victim said that she pulled the trigger and it went “click;” but nothing happened. Then Meyers allegedly put the gun to his own head and it also went “click,” repeating this two more times. The victim told deputies that she and Meyers then went for a motorcycle ride. After the ride she got off, took her keys from Meyers and then got into her vehicle and locked the doors. She drove to the hospital and called law enforcement. According to the report the female was emotional and crying when she spoke with deputies. Deputies also noticed during an interview that she had various scratches and bruising on her body.
