A husband and wife were arrested this week after a suspected altercation with an occupant of a Plymouth apartment. The husband is accused of making "threatening statements" while holding a gun at his side.
Jessie R. Gonzalez, 26, of 319 Park St., Plymouth, is charged with burglary, a fourth-degree felony, in connection with an incident Monday. Samantha L. (Barnett) Gonzalez, also 26, of the same address, faces a misdemeanor count of assault.
The couple drove to the victim's resident.
"He (Jessie Gonzalez) was looking for the occupant of the Park Avenue residence," Norwalk Assistant Law Director Scott Christophel said. "He was not invited.
"He forced his way into the apartment while the occupants were present," the prosecutor said. "It's alleged he was holding a handgun at his side. ... He made threatening statements while holding the gun."
Witnesses could see the weapon, Christophel said.
"The definition of brandishing covers someone seeing it," he added.
Gonzalez's wife is accused of punching a female occupant on the side of the face, Christophel said. The suspect reportedly was behind the victim.
"The complainant alleged she was attacked," Christophel said. "I think there was at least one minor child present."
It's unknown how the suspects know the victim or if she required medical attention.
"They fled the scene. They were taken into custody later," Christophel said. "I don't believe a gun has been recovered."
The incident remains under investigation by the Plymouth Police Department.
Gonzalez has been prohibited from being on the premises of the victim's home and isn't allowed to contact her. Norwalk Municipal Judge John Ridge set the defendant's bond at $40,000.
The suspects were in custody at the Huron County Jail as of late Wednesday afternoon.
