A woman was left visibly shaken after a former Guam Police Department civilian reservist pointed a gun at her head during an argument.
Court documents state that Monte Inocencio Mathiot assaulted a woman known to him on Jan. 3.
Police responded to a family violence complaint in Dededo where they met with a woman who told authorities that Mathiot had prevented her from leaving the residence and strangled her.
The assault continued, according to the woman, with Mathiot allegedly punching her in the stomach before he pulled out a gun and pointed it at the woman’s head.
She told police that Mathiot asked her: “You want to know what pain is?”
Police discovered that the gun, a black Smith and Wesson pistol, was issued to Mathiot by the Guam Police Department.
Court documents state that Mathiot was terminated as a CVPR a couple of years ago, but he failed to return the firearm.
According to police, Mathiot said he attempted to return the gun but the armory was closed.
Police also say that Mathiot’s firearms identification has expired.
He was charged with family violence, strangulation and possession of a firearm without a firearms ID. He was booked and confined.
