Fargo, N.D. (WDAY TV) -A 27-year-old man allegedly armed with a gun sent East Grand Forks Police on a manhunt for over an hour today after an alleged domestic disturbance.
It happened around 10:30 this morning at the North Star Terrace trailer park.
The man allegedly threatened his girlfriend with a gun.
After an hour long search the man was found hiding outside in a shed wearing only socks, a pair of sweat pants and a t-shirt. It was only negative 10 degrees and a negative 30 degree wind-chill.
Police believe the man is a person living in the country illegally. He may be facing several charges
Lt. Rod Hajicek “Well they're still investigating it. There's a possibility it would be an assault second if he did threaten with a gun which it sounds like there’s at least talk of a gun being involved. Domestic abuse type charges will be filed.”
The case is still under investigation. The suspect could face up to seven years in prison and or a $14,000 fine if charged and convicted of assault in the second degree.
