WILLMAR - Yusef Mohamed Muhumed, 23, of Willmar, was found guilty this week of four felony charges in connection with a November assault of two women at a Willmar residence.
Muhumed was convicted of burglary in the first degree - assault of person in a building, threats of violence, domestic assault and violation of a no-contact order.
A Kandiyohi County jury returned the guilty verdicts Tuesday after the one-day trial.
The jury found him not guilty of a misdemeanor charge of theft.
Sentencing is set for March 8.
According to the complaint filed against him, Muhumed had just been released from jail and a domestic abuse no-contact order had been issued early in the day on Nov. 2. At 5:30 p.m. on that same day, Muhumed went to the home where he was prohibited and tricked the women into opening the door by claiming on the intercom to be a nephew.
One of the women tried to slam the door shut but Muhumed forced the door open, which caused one of them to stumble backward.
According to the complaint, Muhumed struck the woman with an open hand on her face and then struck her in the chest with a blender that was in the kitchen.
He also threatened to kill everyone in the apartment before running out the door with keys to a vehicle.
