Duncan Police arrested a man they say is accused of kicking in a front door of a residence and threatening someone with a dangerous weapon.

According to court records, Ramiro Fabian Gonzalez is charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and burglary in the first degree.

Court documentation shows police responded to a call around 12:30 p.m. Jan. 6 at a residence on 3rd Street about a male subject pulling a knife on a resident in the area. When police arrived on scene they found the victim, who flagged them down and told police Gonzalez had pulled a knife on them “in a threatening manner” and was now inside the home even though he no longer lived at the residence.

Police, according to records, called for Gonzalez to come out of the home and he complied. When asked if he had a knife on him, he told police he did, according to a report, and handed it over. He also told police he used to live at the home but moved out and wanted to visit a family member still living there. Gonzalez also said he didn’t pull a knife on the victim and said they were making it up “trying to get him in trouble” reports state.

Gonzalez was told to leave the residence and he “reluctantly complied,” gathered a bag he had and went across the street where he said he was going to stand. Police, according to reports, advised Gonzalez to leave the area instead of staying and disturbing the peace, but Gonzalez stayed.

Just 20 minutes later, police were sent to the home again, but this time dispatch advised Gonzalez had “broken into the house by kicking in the front door and breaking a window.” When police arrived, they observed the victim trying to close the broken front door and the victim told police Gonzalez kicked it in and ran off, pointing behind the residence.

Police spotted Gonzalez and asked him to stop but he ran off, reports show. Police pursued him and asked him to get on the ground before placing him at gunpoint because he previously had “been armed with a knife,” according to an affidavit.

Police reported Gonzalez was uncooperative and eventually, Gonzalez was placed on the ground by two officers. Reports show Gonzalez was allegedly “argumentative, resistive and threatening” while in transport to jail. He was placed in a restraint chair in jail during booking.

Bond for Gonzalez has not yet been set, according to On Demand Court Records, which shows an initial appearance before a magistrate was terminated.
