BOLINGBROOK — A village resident threatened to shoot his new girlfriend after she turned down his sexual advances Wednesday night, police said.
Anthony J. Owens, 27, and a 28-year-old Chicago woman were watching a movie in a bedroom at Owens’ residence, 516 Monroe Road, about 9:50 p.m. when Owens tried “to remove her clothing,” police Lt. Mike Rompa said. “The victim did not welcome the advance and told Owens to stop.”
He said Owens grabbed the woman, whom he had been dating for about a month, in a bear hug but released her when she screamed. Owens then walked to a nearby box, took out a handgun and pointed it at her, ordering her to “leave the residence and threatened to shoot if she did not,” Rompa said.
He said the woman fled and called police, who arrested Owens on charges of aggravated assault, domestic battery and unlawful restraint. A .45-caliber Taurus handgun was seized during the arrest, Rompa said.
