On Thursday, August 7th the Larimer County Sheriff's Office was contacted by a 34 y/o Denver woman with facial injuries. The woman was part of a work crew clearing trees on private property near mile marker 19 on the Cherokee Park Road. She reported she was struck in the face with a pistol and shot at by a co-worker following an argument. 

During the investigation deputies contacted a 27 y/o Denver man, who was also working to clear trees, who reported a similar incident. Following an argument, he too was struck in the side of the head with a pistol and shot at by the same individual.
Investigators obtained an arrest warrant and a search warrant for the property following the interviews with the victims. In cooperation with the Boulder County SWAT team, the Larimer County SWAT team executed both warrants on Saturday. 
JUSTIN K. POHLMANN (09/04/1984) is in custody at the Larimer County Jail and has been charged with:
Two counts of Assault in the Second Degree, which is a Class 4 Felony;
Two counts of Felony Menacing, which is a Class 6 Felony; and
Three counts of Reckless Endangerment, which is a Class 3 Misdemeanor.
 
The charges are merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until, and unless, proven guilty.
 
Anyone with information regarding this incident or any crime is asked to call Larimer County Sheriff’s Office at 970-416-1985 or Crime Stoppers at 970-221-6868 where you will remain anonymous and possibly be eligible for a cash reward.
