MISSOULA — A man was in court on Tuesday on kidnapping charges after an incident involving a teenage girl near Caras Park Monday.

52-year-old Dean Greybull allegedly grabbed a 16-year-old girl by the arm and told her, "You are coming with me" near Brennan's Wave at Caras Park on Monday.

According to court documents, the girl was in the area surfing with friends and later noticed Greybull pacing and attempting to talk with her.

She stated he made her uncomfortable and that her arm hurt where he grabbed it.

Documents state Greybull had a syringe in his pocket and was reportedly shooting heroin and harassing people before the incident.

In court Tuesday afternoon, prosecuting attorney Brittany Williams said Greybull's criminal history is more than 30 pages long, with offenses from multiple states.

The victim's father also made a statement, saying he didn't want Greybull to be released.

Greybull's bail was set at $100,000.
