Bail set for man charged with assault



Washington County District Judge Noel Spence set bail for a city man charged in connection with an assault at $30,000 Monday, court records say.

Ryan E. Strasburg, 21, of 20235 Beaver Creek Rd., was charged with first- and second-degree assault and reckless endangerment in connection with an incident Sunday at approximately 9:43 p.m., court records say.

Police allege in court records that Strasburg struck his stepsister, who was not named in court documents, inside a car and chased his father, Alan E.

A Washington County Detention Center spokeswoman said Strasburg remained at the Jail Monday evening.
