Information provided by the Churchill County District Attorney’s Office. On April 16, 2020, Casey Alan Johns, while armed with a knife, forcibly kicked in the door to the unoccupied room at the Budget Inn. After leaving that hotel room, Johns found his way to another random room with an open door. That room was occupied by an adult male and an adult female, who never saw Johns before this day. The male victim noticed Johns walk towards their room and tried to shut the door. However, Johns entered their room before it could be shut. The male victim tried to protect his female friend by blocking Johns from further entering the room and holding his hands up with his palms out. Johns used his knife and slashed the male victim’s right hand, which caused a deep cut that went across his entire palm, cutting an artery and resulting in nerve damage.
