Reno Man Found Guilty in Beating Case

Posted: Updated:

The Washoe County District Attorney’s Office says a Reno man was found guilty of beating a homeless shelter employee and breaking the victim’s jaw.

36-year-old Christopher Woodstone was found guilty last Thursday of Battery Causing Substantial Bodily Harm after a two day trial in Washoe County District Court. 

Woodstone was arrested on December 28, 2016 by the Reno Police Department after an investigation at the Community Assistance Center’s Record Street family shelter. 

Woodstone was asked to leave the family shelter after staff received disturbance complaints about him. When a male staff member told Woodstone to leave, authorities say he punched the victim in the face which resulted in a broken jaw. 

Woodstone fled and a police report was filed. 

Woodstone returned to the shelter a week later and RPD was notified. 

RPD patrol officers contacted Woodstone and he was arrested on an unrelated warrant and the battery.

Sentencing is set for September.

    With the area finally seeing some more winter weather this week, REMSA officials are reminding people to be prepared for anything, during the colder temperatures. So far this winter, REMSA has only responded to about five calls regarding hypothermia and frostbite. Fortunately, that number is down from around 19 this same time last year. But, officials say that is no reason to be lax about winter weather preparedness.
