A man is in the custody of the Department of Corrections after he allegedly assaulted a woman known to him and threatened to burn down her home.
The victim told police that her relative, Eliud Dulei, was arguing with his girlfriend when he asked her if she wanted him to slap the victim and then threw a rock at the victim’s bedroom window.

⁃ Family violence as a 3rd-degree felony
