BONNER COUNTY, Idaho — A 26-year-old Bonner County man was arrested last week on a pair of battery charges as well as assault after police say he attacked a couple who stopped to give him a ride.
On May 24, a couple was driving down Schweitzer Cutoff Road when they noticed an individual walking down the middle of the road, according to court records. They offered the man, later identified as Dagon Rohrich, a ride and while he originally declined, the probable cause affidavit contends he eventually accepted. However, once in the vehicle, Rohrich allegedly refused to tell the couple where he needed to go.
“The male then called his dad on his cellphone and told his dad he was being kidnapped by two people and he was going to kill them,” the probable cause affidavit said.
Almost immediately, Rohrich allegedly began choking the male driver from behind while also punching him in the face, court records said. The female passenger attempted to pull Rohrich’s arms off of the man but instead received multiple blows to the face as well, according to court records.
