Ham Lake man facing felony charges

An incident in Coon Rapids in May has resulted in three charges, two of them felonies, being filed in Anoka County District Court this month against a Ham Lake man by the Anoka County Attorney’s Office.

Alexander Lewis Becker, 24, 17121 Seventh St. N.E., was arraigned in court July 16 on two felony counts of terroristic threats as well as a gross misdemeanor charge of third-degree criminal damage to property.

Becker was released on his own recognizance, a no contact order was issued and he is due back in court Aug. 13.

The early hours of May 15, police responded to a call from a Coon Rapids residence on the 11200 block of Osage Street N.W., where they found four vehicles parked outside had had their windows damaged.

The vehicle owners identified Becker as the culprit using a baseball bat, according to the complaint.

While police were checking the damaged vehicles, Becker allegedly phoned one of the victims and police had him put the call on speaker phone.

The complaint alleges that police heard Becker admit to damaging the vehicles, then threaten the victim he had called and one of the other vehicle owners, as well as their families, including striking them in the face and cracking their heads open with a baseball bat.

The damage done to the vehicles of the two victims who were threatened was estimated at $839.33, according to the complaint.
