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.
