On October 29th, 2019 21-year-old Cole Cranstoun of Sonora was arrested this morning for three felony charges.


Just after 4:00 am this morning, officers responded to the ER regarding a patient being treated for a battery.  The investigating officer learned that approximately two hours earlier, Cranstoun assaulted the 30-year-old male victim at a residence on South Stewart Street.


According to the victim, Cranstoun was upset that the victim had called 911 to assist a friend with a medical need which subsequently generated a law enforcement response.  Cranstoun struck the victim in the head and face causing the victim to lose consciousness, later requiring medical treatment for his injuries.


Officers located Cranstoun at his residence on Stewart Street a short time later.  Upon contact, he was found to be in possession of a fixed-blade knife concealed under his clothing.


Cranstoun was booked for battery causing serious injury, intimidating and threatening a witness, and for being in possession of a dirk or dagger.  Cole is on felony probation for crimes of violence, so charges for violating probation are also being sought against him.
