Heather Brown, 41, of Fremont County is facing one count of Unlawful Entry Into An Occupied Structure and one count of Theft.

On May 7th, 2020 a Riverton Police Department officer was in the area of North 7th Street East. The officer was approached by a male subject who told him that he had been assaulted.


Court documents show the male subject had, “major swelling on his forehead and bruises all over his face and head. There was blood on the bridge of his nose and his forehead.”

He described to the officer that he and a guest were inside of a residence when Brown and five other people knocked on his door. After refusing to allow them entry, he described that Brown kicked his door down and the six individuals entered the home.

The victim described that two of the individuals, including Brown, began punching him. When he fell to the ground, he told RPD the intruders, “kicked him in the face, head, body, legs, and arms approximately 30 times.”

He told officers that Brown then instructed the other individuals to, “take anything they could.”


Court documents show that 5 phones were stolen, along with two blue-tooth speakers, a .22 caliber air rifle, and the victim’s wallet.

In the evening of May 7th, the Riverton Police Department received a tip the party involved were staying at a Riverton motel. After investigating two separate rooms, officers located each of the six individuals involved in the theft and many of the stolen items.

The other five involved have charges still pending.
