Police reports

Indecent exposure

Around noon Friday, police responded to a report of a female attempting to break into vehicles in Butte High School's north parking lot, near the corner of Silver and Main streets. 

Soon after, police identified the suspect, Tangee Lynn Jensen, 47, near Silver Bow homes. 

As she approached officers, Jensen's pants reportedly fell down. Rather than pulling them up, Jensen reportedly "walked right out of her pants," according to Butte-Silver Bow Undersheriff George Skuletich. Jensen then allegedly removed her shirt. 

After reportedly covering her with a blanket, police arrested Jensen and booked her on misdemeanor charges of indecent exposure and criminal contempt. 

Assault of a peace officer

Around 3:30 a.m., early Sunday morning, police responded to the 2100 block of Walnut Street, after receiving a report of a female yelling and screaming.

Upon arriving at the scene, police reportedly discovered Martha Joan Yochim, 29, intoxicated and naked from the waist down.

After speaking with Yochim, officers found out she had been locked out of her residence by her roommate and that she had a cut on her arm from punching a window.

As officers attempted to restrain Yochim, she allegedly struck one of them. 

Yochim was taken to the hospital to treat her cut before being booked on a felony charge of assaulting a peace officer. 

The officer was not injured.

Partner/family-member assault

At approximately 5 p.m. Sunday afternoon, police responded to a report of a domestic disturbance on the 1800 block of Wilson Avenue.

Officers spoke with a female at the scene who said she had been arguing with her husband when he grabbed her face, shoved her into a bed and grabbed her arm, during which time she was holding a small child. 

The woman stated she was afraid of her husband, David Michael Howald, 40, of Butte, who was subsequently arrested on charges of partner/family-member assault, negligent endangerment and a probation violation.
