Man sentenced for assault near New York Mills

An assault south of New York Mills has led to jail time for a Menahga man, 34-year-old Glen Robert Campbell, Jr.

His sentencing took place in Otter Tail County District Court in Fergus Falls last Monday, according to court records.

Campbell’s sentence followed a conviction of assault in the third degree resulting in bodily harm.

The incident took place near the intersection of Highway 67 and 340th Street in June. Court documents state that the victim needed stitches and suffered a swollen eye after being hit with a metal pipe.

Campbell was sentenced to 80 days in the Otter Tail County jail, with credit for time served of 54 days. A sentence of 18 months in the Minnesota Correctional Facility, St. Cloud, was stayed for five years, dependent on good behavior.

Another assailant is also part of the overall investigation.
