St. Louis Park man sentenced for assaulting sister with skateboard
A man charged with assaulting his sister with a skateboard last year was sentenced on Monday.
Court records show David Andrew Boll, 45, was sentenced to one year at the Hennepin County Workhouse, for which he was given credit for 147 days already served, and five years of supervised probation. The judge also sentenced him to 103 months in the St. Cloud Correctional Facility but stayed that part of the sentence for five years and will likely waive it as long as Boll doesn't violate probation.
He had pleaded guilty to first-degree assault last June.
According to a criminal complaint, St. Louis Park police responded to a home on Rhode Island Avenue S. on March 24, 2019, after Boll reported he thought he killed his sister. He allegedly told officers at the scene he "beat her upside the head" with a skateboard, stating he hit her "harder, harder, I kept on beating."
Officers found the victim unconscious and bleeding from her head. She was taken to a hospital in critical condition with a fractured skull, spine and ribs.
The complaint adds their mother reported hearing her daughter screaming in the basement and found her unconscious. When Boll hit his sister, his mother said she tried to push him into his room.
David Boll also allegedly told authorities that if his sister died he'd consider it "a job well done."
