CROMWELL — A Ligonier man was recently arrested for allegedly threatening and battering a woman.
Allen Moises Abad, 21, 212 Mercer St., Ligonier, is charged with intimidation with a deadly weapon, a level 5 felony; intimidation and domestic battery resulting in moderate bodily injury, both level 6 felonies; and domestic battery, a class A misdemeanor.
On Oct. 10, a Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office deputy spoke with a woman who said Abad threatened her two days prior, on Oct. 8, in Cromwell.
According to court documents, Abad used a firearm to threaten the woman while two children were present. He said he would use his firearm to hurt the woman if she tried to take the children. Abad lifted his shirt and exposed a handgun in the front of his waistband.
Surveillance footage from the location where the incident occurred showed Abad lifting his shirt to expose the front of his waistband to the woman.
On Oct. 21, a KCSO deputy responded to a domestic violence report in Cromwell also involving the woman and Abad.
The woman said Abad made threats to harm her and warned her to not call police. Abad also shoved the woman into a porch’s railing. She complained of pain and stiffness in her back after being shoved.
After leaving the scene, Abad sent the woman two voice-recorded messages which were both threatening in nature.
Abad was booked in the Kosciusko County Jail on Nov. 29, with a $16,250 surety and cash bond.
