Two charged with assaulting state police in Delta County

RAPID RIVER — A Rapid River teen and a Wilson woman who were arrested for allegedly stealing prescriptions and assaulting troopers in Masonville Township last month, are scheduled for individual hearings in Delta County Circuit Court.

Cole Sabastian Malchow, 16, of 12144 T Road, Rapid River, and Ellianna Rae Larson, 20, of W405 Casino Lane, Wilson, were each arrested on multiple counts stemming from a Feb. 7 incident at a residence in Rapid River where troopers were dispatched to a domestic situation, according to Michigan State Police from the Gladstone Post.

The police report stated alcohol and drugs were involved when troopers investigated the domestic situation, which escalated into assaults on four troopers.

Malchow, who is being prosecuted as an adult, is charged with one count of assault with a dangerous weapon, also known as felonious assault, (a four-year felony) for allegedly assaulting a trooper with a dog without intending to murder the officer or inflict great bodily harm less than murder.

Malchow is also charged with one count of larceny in a building for allegedly stealing Trazadone pills (a four-year felony). He is also charged with four counts of assaulting/ resisting/ obstructing a police officer (each a two-year felony) for allegedly assaulting four troopers.

Malchow, who remains lodged in the county jail, was bound over from probate court to circuit court. No bond has been set. He is scheduled for a pretrial conference hearing in circuit court on April 23.

Larson is charged with one count of larceny in a building for allegedly stealing prescription medications and three counts of assaulting/ resisting/ obstructing a police officer for allegedly assaulting three troopers.

Larson was treated for minor injuries at OSF HealthCare St. Francis Hospital then lodged in jail. She was released from police custody after she posted $3,000, or 10 percent of a $30,000 surety bond. She is scheduled for a pretrial conference hearing in circuit court on April 9.
