A Grand Forks man is charged with aggravated assault after he allegedly shattered the back window of a car with a baseball bat at the intersection of 32nd Avenue and Columbia Road.

Aaron Scott Thompson, 32, was also charged with terrorizing and criminal mischief.

An affidavit for his arrest said Thompson was in a vehicle driven by Wayde Allen Stoltman of Grand Forks on Aug. 30. They pulled behind a car and court documents say they got out at 32nd Avenue and Columbia around 10 p.m. Thompson allegedly smashed the rear passenger window with a baseball bat, the affidavit said.

Two men riding in the car were injured by the shattered glass and Thompson and Stoltman fled, court documents said.

Thompson and Stoltman were allegedly following the vehicle earlier in the day, records said. Thompson knew a woman who was in the vehicle, the affidavit said.
