Douglas County prosecutors Friday filed two aggravated assault charges against a 27-year-old Kansas City, Kan., man accused of displaying a handgun Thursday during a domestic dispute in the 1600 block of Haskell Avenue.
Prosecutors accused Aaron J. Epps of threatening a 17-year-old juvenile and another man with the gun during the incident. He also faces a misdemeanor domestic battery count for having physical contact with a woman.
Police said they arrested Epps on Thursday after they were called about 3:10 p.m. to an apartment in the area about a disturbance. Officers determined a domestic dispute occurred between Epps and woman at the apartment. The juvenile tried to intervene and assist the female when Epps allegedly threatened him with the weapon.
A judge set his bond at $7,000. His next hearing is scheduled for Monday.
