Series of Fights Lead to One in Hospital and Multiple Arrests

KSAL StaffJune 15, 2017

One person was sent to the hospital and three were arrested after three separate fights on Monday evening, June 12.

Capt. Paul Forrester tells KSAL News that law enforcement was called to 241 S. 9th St. in Salina for a disturbance.

When police arrived, they found one man, Michael Greenwood, with obvious facial injuries and unable to speak clearly because some of his teeth had been fractured.

Earlier in the day, there had been two fights at this location between four subjects who all know each other.

During the altercation, one of the subjects, Maxwell Thille, had apparently hit a female in the head and another individual, a 23-year-old from Andover, Mika Thille, produced a hand gun and pointed it at Greenwood. However, the gun failed to fire after he pulled the trigger.

After the first altercation had been broken up, three of the subjects returned because one had left his wallet at the S. 9th St. home.

A second fight broke out and once again, Maxwell Thille hit the female in the head and left the residence. Police arrived shortly afterwords at around 5:34 P.M. and found Greenwood with his injuries.

Then, at 5:40 P.M., police were called to 515 W. Walnut for another disturbance and stabbing. A female had apparently confronted Maxwell Thille and pulled out a 12-inch long knife, which Maxwell sustained a minor cut on his hand.

The female then fled before police arrived, however, they later arrested a 23-year-old from Salina, Valerie Vogel, the sister of the woman who had been assaulted by Maxwell Thille.

After all of the altercations, Greenwood had been sent to the hospital due to his injuries and three were arrested.

Maxwell Thille is charged with three counts of battery and Mika Thille is charged with aggravated battery, aggravated assault, aggravated burglary and criminal damage to property.

Vogel is charged with criminal battery.
