Hilbun bond set at $75,000


GREENVILLE — A local man faces up to 32 years in prison after an initial appearance via video from the Darke County jail in common pleas court on Tuesday, Nov. 26.

Jonathan W. Hilbun, 47, is charged with aggravated burglary, two counts felonious assault, and abduction by force or threat stemming from an incident that transpired on Oct. 26.

According to the police report, officers were dispatched to a home on Sweitzer St., for a burglary in progress. Upon arrival, a female occupant was found on the roof of the home and a male inside with a two-inch laceration across his upper left arm and shoulder area.

It is alleged that the woman’s on and off again boyfriend, Hilbun, armed with a knife, had kicked in the front door. That Hilbun proceeded to grab the woman and pull her towards the front door when the other male attempted to intervene and was subsequently injured.
