Multiple Guns Recovered Following Domestic Violence Arrest

Domestic violence detectives are investigating after a woman was assaulted and multiple firearms were recovered from an East precinct home Sunday evening.

Officers responded to a home in the East precinct Sunday at 8:50 p.m. for a report of a domestic violence disturbance.  When officers arrived they spoke with a woman who said that she had just broken off a seven-year relationship with her now ex-boyfriend. The suspect, a 45-year-old man,  had reportedly been drinking all day before he threw a flask hitting the victim. The man then made threats to shoot himself and to blow up the neighborhood.

Officers were able to coax the man out of the basement where he was taken into custody for domestic violence assault and DV threats.  Officers removed multiple firearms from the home at the request of the victim. All of the firearms will be placed into safekeeping while the investigation continues.
