Green Bay Man Indicted for Assault on Menominee Indian Reservation

Gregory J. Haanstad, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on January 3, 2018, a federal grand jury returned a one-count indictment against a man allegedly involved in an assault on the Menominee Indian Reservation. The indictment named Anthony Kitchenakow (age: 46) of Green Bay.

 

The indictment charged Kitchenakow with Assault with a Dangerous Weapon in violation of 18

U.S.C. Section 113. Kitchenakow faces a maximum sentence of up to 10 years’ imprisonment, up to a $250,000 fine, and up to 3 years of supervised release.

 

According to the indictment, on November 29, 2017, the defendant used a knife and assaulted a man outside a residence in Neopit, which is on the Menominee Indian Reservation.

 

The case was investigated by the Menominee Tribal Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Andrew J. Maier.

 

An indictment is only a charge and not evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
