On Friday, February 23, 2024, at approximately 6am, Dispatch received a report that a male had assaulted a family member, who sustained moderate injuries. While deputies were responding to the residence, located in the 800-block of Longview Drive in Berthoud, they learned the suspect had armed himself with a gun. Once deputies arrived on scene, everyone except the suspect safely exited the residence. 

When contacted by phone, the suspect was cooperative, and walked out and was safely taken into custody. Follow up interviews were conducted, and probable cause was established to arrest the suspect on several charges. The Florida male, identified as Robert Johnson (12/19/2003) has been arrested on the following:

•    Attempted Murder in the First Degree (F2)
•    Menacing (F5)
•    2nd Degree Assault (F4)
•    3rd Degree Assault (M1)
•    Obstruction of Telephone Service (M1)

“We are grateful to our incredible team of Dispatchers, Patrol Deputies, Investigators, and our Forensic Unit that swiftly responded to assist in this tense situation,” said Berthoud Sgt. Justin Williamson. “Violence is never the answer, and the suspect made the right decision to come out of the residence on his own. We are thankful for the favorable resolution of this situation, with no further injuries incurred." 

Johnson was issued a $150,000 cash bond by the Larimer County Court. A booking photo has been attached. 

The charges are merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until, and unless, proven guilty.
