BILLINGS -

The man accused of stabbing a 40-year-old woman in downtown Billings over the weekend makes a court appearance.

Johnny Tillman, 59, faces felony counts of assault with a weapon and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence. Early Saturday morning, police arrested Tillman a block away from the crime scene and reported he was intoxicated and uncooperative.

Court documents reveal the woman met up with Tillman earlier and they drank a pint of whiskey together near the loading dock in an alley along Montana Avenue. She fell asleep and woke up alone. As she started to walk around, she saw Tillman who was yelling. She told officers she turned around and Tillman attacked her from behind.

Billings Police say the woman then went to a man nearby, asked him to call 9-1-1, and gave a description of Tillman.
