Sinajana woman arrested for terrorizing


The Guam Police Department has not yet submitted hard copies of the police report to the Attorney General’s Office.

Guam – A complaint filed with the Mandana Drug Task Force on Monday has led to the arrest of a Sinajana woman accused of terrorizing another woman.

According to GPD Spokesperson AJ Balajadia, Charissa Marie Tenorio is accused of threatening a woman known to her.

Despite the arrest being made by the Mandana Drug Task force, Balajadia confirmed that no drugs were involved in the case. Tenorio was arrested for terrorizing. She was booked and confined but did not appear for a magistrate hearing today.

The Attorney General’s Office has 48 hours to pursue charges against a defendant from the time of arrest but AG Spokesperson Carlina Charfauros tells PNC that they have no information at this time, noting that nothing has come their way and therefore they are unable to comment on Tenorio’s case.

Tenorio was arrested a day before her brother, Lt. Governor candidate Josh Tenorio officially opened his campaign headquarters with gubernatorial candidate Lou Leon Guerrero.

Meanwhile, GPD says although the hard copy of the police report has not been sent to the AG’s Office, they did receive the details and information from GPD as there as an “on call” attorney who has been working with the Mandana Drug Task Force on this case.

Department of Corrections Deputy Director Kate Baltazar confirms that Charissa Tenorio is still confined at DOC.
