A teenager was at the receiving end of an alleged pellet gun assault – the reasoning? Because he was talking to his assailant
According to a magistrate’s report, on January 22, police received a walk-in complaint from a woman claiming that her husband, 44-year-old Rozel Mendoza Palacol, was shooting a pellet gun in the air.
The report says that a 16-year-old minor told Palacol to stop shooting.
The report added that Palacol allegedly said he would shoot the minor if he spoke again.
Upon police interview, the minor said he “was in so much fear” of Palacol.
Court documents say that the minor witnessed Palacol’s wife telling him to stop shooting the pellet gun but Palacol got angry at her.
The minor told Palacol to leave them alone and he responded by pointing the pellet gun at him and told him, he would not hesitate to shoot him if he ever answered him.
The minor also added that Palacol told him he would “put him back where he came from if he kept talking to him.”
Rozel Mendoza Palacol was charged with both child abuse and family violence as misdemeanors.
