NEW CASTLE — New Castle police seized two shotguns and four rifles after an alleged assault.

Officers were called around 11:40 p.m. Monday to Skyview Towers, where a woman reported that Raymond Davis, 74, who lives in an apartment there, had taken medication and threatened her with a rifle. The woman, who is pregnant, said he took the gun out of his closet and threatened to shoot her, then he left.

She told police he has possession of several rifles and a handgun.

Officers went to his apartment and he refused to comply with police orders to put his hands up. Officers wrestled him to the floor and handcuffed him. They found several rifles and shotguns inside the bedroom closet and confiscated them because of his alleged threat.

He is charged with terroristic threats, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person.

He was arraigned by District Judge Melissa A. Amodie, who set his bond at $5,000.
