WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - A Williston man facing numerous charges in an alleged rampage at a Home of Economy store could enter pleas soon.

Court documents show Richard Colvin faces a hearing Monday on felony charges of robbery, aggravated assault and drug paraphernalia possession, along with misdemeanor counts of criminal mischief, theft of property and simple assault. The documents don’t list an attorney for him.

Authorities allege Colvin on Jan. 26 assaulted several store employees after being confronted about taking theft detection devices off merchandise. Police say one worker suffered a cut arm when shoved into a pane of glass, and another suffered knife scrapes to his face.

The Williston Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1gJz7LP ) damage to the store is estimated at $1,550.

Police also allege Colvin tried to hide drug syringes in a patrol car.
