Three young North Platte men were arrested Thursday night and charged with assaulting an 18-year-old man and threatening him with a shotgun.

Police spokesman John Deal said there were two assaults earlier that night, one at a home on West Fifth and the second not far from a laundromat on East 10th.

Officers fielded the complaint at 7:33 p.m.

The first incident was in the 2500 block of West Fifth, where the alleged victim said he was with three other young men -- Briano Parra-Munoz, 20, Tyrone Brave, 19, and Anthony Fleecs, 19, all of North Platte.

According to the police report, Parra-Munoz chambered a round in a shotgun and pointed it at the victim, and Brave and Fleecs urged Parra-Munoz to shoot, but he didn’t.

Later, the four men were at a laundromat at 117 E. 10th, where they talked and decided to walk over to a nearby residence.

The victim said as they walked over there, Brave suddenly turned and punched him in the face, knocking him to the ground, and the trio berated him while he was on the ground. He said one of the men recorded the incident on his smart phone. 

Deal said the man had minor injuries consistent with being punched in the face.  

A search for the three men got underway. Officers found Anthony Fleecs near the Family Dollar on Rodeo Rd. and took him into custody, charging him with aiding and abetting terroristic threats. 

Parra-Munoz and Brave were reportedly in a room at the Western Motel on Rodeo Rd. When police arrived there, a woman, Angel Lopez, 42, answered the door. Deal said she repeatedly gave a false name. There was an existing warrant for Lopez’s arrest. She was taken into custody and also charged with false reporting for giving police a phony name. It is her third arrest this year.  

Parra-Munoz and Brave were arrested inside the room and taken to the Lincoln County jail.

Parra-Munoz is charged with terroristic threats -- for pointing the shotgun and threatening the alleged victim.

Brave is charged with aiding and abetting terroristic threats, and also charged with third-degree assault for punching the victim.

A search warrant was executed on the home on W. Fifth, and several firearms were seized, including a shotgun that fit the description the victim provided, the police report said.

Fleecs just got out of jail two days earlier, where he was behind bars for one day to serve out court costs for his previous involvement with a stolen U-Haul trailer in February. This was his sixth arrest in Lincoln County since May. In the most serious case, he spent 99 days in jail for assault.

He is held this time on $100,000 bond.

Parra-Munoz also has a record of arrests. He’s served three stints in jail for stalking, including two terms in 2016 for a total of 234 days. In 2015 he was charged with assault and use of a weapon, according to Lincoln County sheriff’s records. He is initially held without bond.

Brave’s bond was also set at $100,000. This is his second arrest in Lincoln County.
