Deputies report a tame Halloween evening

Nov 1, 2012 - By Eric Blom, Staff Writer

Halloween was fairly quiet for the Fremont County Sheriff's Office. Deputies responded to a few incidents involving intoxication and a couple of calls related to trick-or-treating.

The father of an 11-year-old Dubois boy reported to deputies that his son was threatened Wednesday at a Halloween party in downtown Riverton. Two older boys reportedly stuck something cold and hard into the 11 year-old's chest. The younger boy thought they were going to steal his candy.

"We have no reason to believe there was a real or simulated firearm," said Captain Ryan Lee of the Fremont County Sheriff's Office.

Lee said the sheriff's office is treating the incident as a bullying incident, and deputies are still trying to contact the older boys.

A woman said she was threatened by a resident while trick-or-treating with her child in Pavillion.

A little before 9 p.m. Wednesday, Kaysha Komkoff told deputies and her child approached a house, and the residents told her they were not handing out candy.

Komkoff told deputies that she then threatened to toilet paper their house. Komkoff said a resident responded saying, "Go ahead, I have a .45."

A deputy responded and found the homeowner was not armed. The sheriff's office did not consider the incident a crime.
