BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A North Dakota man has been sentenced to more than two years in prison on assault charges.

Duane Kidder, of Fort Yates, pleaded guilty in April to two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon.

Authorities say the 24-year-old Kidder was involved in two separate assaults on women, in January 2012 and January 2013. Both victims required medical treatment.

Kidder's co-defendant in the 2012 assault, Lionel Jewett, was sentenced in April on two counts of burglary, one count of assault to commit murder, and two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon. Jewett was sentenced to six years in prison.
