A Penn State student faces misdemeanor charges after an alleged domestic incident Saturday involving a gun.
According to the criminal complaint filed by Ferguson Township police, officers responded at about 3 a.m. to the 100 block of Dewsbury Heights for a report of a man pointing a gun at a woman. On arrival, officers encountered Yi Kong, 22, who was immediately taken into custody.
Kong reported having a gun in the second floor bedroom, police said. A BB gun pistol and a Sig Sauer pistol were reportedly found in the room.
Officers spoke with the woman on the scene, who stated she and Kong had been arguing about another man that was interested in her. She had allegedly attempted to speak about their relationship, but Kong became upset.
At one point, Kong left the room and returned carrying a “short gun,” police said, waiving it around the bedroom and causing the woman to fear for her safety. He reportedly told the woman during the argument that he would “kill them both.”
Kong was arraigned Saturday before District Judge Kelley Gillette-Walker, according to court documents, and charged with misdemeanor counts of terroristic threats, simple assault, reckless endangerment, harassment and disorderly conduct. Straight monetary bail was set at $250,000 and he was taken to the Centre County Correctional Facility.
A preliminary hearing is slated for Wednesday.
