Sidney man arrested on terroristic threats charge


Jason Assad, a 35-year-old Sidney man, was arrested for making terroristic threats last week after an alleged domestic dispute at the El Palomino hotel on Illinois St.

Just after midnight on April 24, personnel at Sidney Regional Medical Center notified Sidney police that they were treating a woman for injuries she allegedly sustained during an altercation with Assad earlier that night.

Assad’s 38-year-old significant other claimed that she suffered the injuries during a fight with Assad at a private apartment at the hotel. Assad said he would kill her during the fight, in addition to making other threats, the woman reportedly claimed.

Police executed a search warrant on the apartment prior to Assad’s arrest. Evidence found therein may lead to additional charges, according to Sidney Chief of Police B.J. Wilkinson.

Police arrested Assad at another residence on 13th Ave. in Sidney. He was booked into the Cheyenne County jail on $50,000 bond.
