At around 6:20 Tuesday night, Missoula Police received a call about a disturbance in the 1900 block of South 3rd Street West. Police Public Information Officer Travis Welsh explains.

“When they arrived, they made contact with the female who reported that a known male had taken her cellphone after striking her in the face and head,” Welsh said. “This all stemmed from an earlier argument between the two over a financial agreement that they had. The officers made contact with the male who was identified as 28-year-old Shewit Naizgi.”

According to Welsh, the victim suffered some minor injuries. She requested to go to the hospital and was treated for her injuries. The man was charged with one count of felony robbery.
