Samantha Khan, Minot, charged with felony criminal trespass

Samantha Khan, 30, Minot, is accused of trespassing at a southwest Minot residence early Wednesday morning.

She is charged with Class C felony criminal trespass in district court in Minot.

According to a probable cause affidavit filed with the court, police received a call at 2:46 a.m. Wednesday that a woman was breaking things in the front yard of a residence. The woman had walked away from the area prior to the arrival of law enforcement. At 2:58 a.m., police then received a call that Khan had broken into a residence and was being held at gunpoint by the resident in his yard. Officer Andrew Roach responded and found Khan walking away from that address. He stopped her and asked her what she was doing there. Khan told him that her boyfriend had cheated on her and pointed in the direction of the resident of the home, who was standing on his front steps.

The resident of the southwest Minot home told police he has never met Khan and she did not have permission to be in his residence. The man told police that Khan had been ringing his door bell a few minutes prior to the incident and he did not respond because he did not know who it was. Khan then entered his residence through his back door and he heard his dogs barking. The man came out of his room and told Khan to leave. Khan then went back outside through the back door and began walking around to the front of the house. The man grabbed his gun and followed her to the front of his house. Khan began yelling “we just slept together yesterday.”

Roach wrote in his affidavit that Khan was not wearing shoes and appeared confused about why law enforcement was there.

Khan made an initial appearance on the charge on Wednesday in district court in Minot. Jail records show that bond was set at $2,500 cash or corporate surety. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on Aug. 22 before Judge Stacy Louser.
