The man who is suspected of trying to kidnap a lady while threatening her with a gun and holding her at gunpoint in a Hillsboro sub shop early on Sunday morning has now been charged in Traill County Court. However, he has not been taken into custody as of yet.
Mark Weibye, 62 years old and a resident of Hillsboro, is accused of committing three felonies in connection with the incident. These offenses include attempted kidnapping, felonious restraint, and menacing.
On July 24, just after 7 a.m., deputies from Traill County were dispatched to a Subway restaurant that is located just east of Interstate 29.

“He brought a revolver out, and as I cowered back on the ground in the fetal position, I pleaded with him, “Don’t shoot me!” On Monday, the victim in the case, Jackie Halvorson, spoke to Valley News Live about her experience.
According to Halvorson and the records filed in the court, Weibye is accused of approaching the woman while she was cleaning the windows at the front of the restaurant, grabbing her, and beginning to take her toward his vehicle while pointing a revolver at her head and chest.
Halvorson shared his thoughts by saying, “I didn’t want to be shot, and I didn’t want to be thrown in that vehicle.” “I have no idea what just took place. I just went berserk. I immediately began thrashing around with my arms and legs. I have no idea how I escaped from him, but I ran as soon as I felt his arm relax its hold on me. I just ran!”
According to the records, a handgun that matched the victim’s description of the firearm was discovered inside Weibye’s residence.
Weibye was transported to a hospital in Fargo for mental health assessments shortly after being apprehended, as claimed by the officials of Traill County, who also stated that Weibye was “already under the supervision of a doctor.” Charles Stock, the prosecutor in charge of the case, was not present in the office on Thursday to respond to concerns regarding the location of Weibye. There is currently an active warrant for Weibye’s arrest.
