Joshua Moye, who was convicted in a 2014 drug smuggling case, is back behind bars on allegations that he strangled a woman and pointed a gun to her head.
Moye was under supervised release for a 2014 drug smuggling case when the incident occurred.
A court magistrate complaint states that on April 18th, Moye and the victim were watching a movie when he received a video call with multiple individuals on it.
The victim reported feeling disrespected, telling police that she became irritated and began to leave the room but was stopped by Moye.
That’s when she grabbed his phone causing him to become angry.
The victim told police that Moye grabbed her, pushed her and wrapped his arm around her neck to the point she could not breathe.
The alleged assault continued as she attempted to flee. Moye allegedly pushed her against the wall, striking her head several times.
Police say Moye followed the victim into a bedroom where he punched and stomped on her, then threatened her with a utility knife before getting a black gun. “He cocked it and placed it on her forehead,” according to the complaint.
Police say that Moye admitted to arguing and pushing the victim and picking up a knife. No further admissions to the allegations were detailed.
He has been charged with family violence offenses with a special allegation of possession and use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony.
