Trenton Missouri Police Department

The Grundy County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of a Trenton man Monday on felony charges of third-degree domestic assault and hindering prosecution of a felony as well as on a probation violation.

Bonds for 32-year-old Michael Anthony Stantruff total $30,000 cash only and he is scheduled for the Associate Division of circuit court May 14th for the domestic assault and hindering prosecution charges.

Stantruff is scheduled for Division One May 16th on the probation violation on original felony charges of first-degree assault or attempt—serious physical injury or special victim and armed criminal action.

Court documents accuse Stantruff of causing physical pain to a family or household member by grabbing the person by the neck and dragging that person by the hair as well as preventing the apprehension of Shelly Washburn for conduct constituting the offense of failure to appear on charges of felony possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia by stating to officers he was not going to give her location.

Stantruff is also accused of causing serious physical pain to Michael Washburn by stabbing him multiple times in the back with a pocket knife and committing felony assault with the use of a deadly weapon.
