DERBY — A 21-year-old man from Derby was arrested on Saturday after police say he assaulted someone and pointed a gun at them.
Authorities were dispatched to a welfare check in Derby after someone called police to report that their friend had been threatened with a weapon.
Troopers responded to the victim’s home and allege that Mark Roy, 21, of Derby, had “brandished a firearm at the victim that day.”
Police say further investigation revealed that “he had assaulted and choked the victim days prior.”
Roy was placed under arrest for suspicion of first-degree aggravated domestic assault and recklessly endangering another person.
He was processed at the VSP-Derby barracks and lodged at the Northern State Correctional Facility for lack of $500.00 bail.
