BAXTER-A 20-year-old man is facing multiple charges for allegedly putting a knife and threatening to kill a man at a residence in Baxter.
Isaac Corbin Holmin had his first appearance Tuesday in Crow Wing County District Court and faces three felonies-second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon, making terroristic threats and domestic assault by strangulation-and three gross misdemeanors-fourth-degree assault of an officer, being in violation of a domestic assault order and obstructing the legal process.
According to the complaint filed against Holmin, Baxter police were called at 10:27 p.m. Saturday to a Baxter residence of a physical domestic involving a weapon. Officers made contact with Holmin, who became upset, stating he didn't do anything, he began to raise his voice and then put his hands in his pockets. Holmin was secured in handcuffs and was observed to be sweating profusely and was constantly moving.
When the officer talked with the male victim, he stated he had come home and found Holmin digging through his backpack in the garage. The complaint stated the defendant grabbed the victim by the shoulder, spun him around hard, put a knife to his throat and threatened that if he was going to go to prison, then he was going to kill him right then and there. The knife was described as a small, black folding knife.
The victim told the defendant to let him go, which Holmin initially did. When the victim tried to walk away, Holmin grabbed him and starting choking him, the complaint stated. Holmin told the victim he would crush his neck so fast he wouldn't even know what happened. The victim was having trouble breathing and after about five seconds, Holmin released him and pushed him away, but grabbed him again twice by the neck. During the assault, Holmin also punched the victim in the left pectoral area and rib/stomach area with a closed fist.
While officers were gathering information, Holmin slipped his handcuffs to the front of his body and argued with officers about needing to have his hands behind his body. The complaint stated it was determined that a transport belt would be placed around Holmin's waist so cuffs could be secured to the belt and prevent Holmin from slipping the cuffs to the front of his body. Holmin proceeded to grab onto the belt and a sheriff's deputy attempted to secure the belt around his waist. Holmin only complied with demands to move his hands when he was advised he would be tased.
After the belt was secured, Holmin began screaming loudly and refusing officer directives to sit inside the squad car, the complaint stated. Officers had to force Holmin into the squad by pulling him in from the opposite door. Holmin then kept his legs straight and locked to prevent officers from closing the door of the squad.
As officers were attempting to get Holmin's legs to bend, an officer held Holmin's head to prevent him from sitting forward or head-butting anyone. During this time, Holmin tried to bite the officer's hands and arms. Once officers were able to close the squad doors, Holmin tried to kick the windows. Holmin then proceeded to smash his head against the front cage and rear metal bars, which are on the side windows.
The officer had the window rolled down to allow him to attempt to talk to Holmin, and when the window was being rolled down, Holmin spit in the officer's face. While struggling with Holmin to secure him into the squad, a deputy suffered an injury to his hand and finger.
The complaint stated Holmin posted on Facebook before police arrived stating "Y'all see me on the incustody list tonight. 1st deg murder."
