A Stock Island man was arrested Sunday, charged with forcing his way in to a residence and threatening the woman who lives there.
At 4 p.m. Sunday, 39 year old Jesus Paoli-Rios went to the apartment on 5th Street. He had a previous trespass warning for the property, but he entered onto the property anyway. He forced open the door and demanded the woman who lives there – his ex-girlfriend – give him his daughter. She refused and managed to force him back outside. He forced his way back inside and made several threatening statements, indicating he would harm her. He grabbed her and continued to threaten her with harm until the victim’s mother shouted at him, saying she was calling police.
He fled the property, but Sgt. Ken Fricke and Deputy Matt Dowling were responding and saw him as he was leaving. He was detained. Paoli-Rios was charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling, battery, assault, trespassing and, after a controlled substance was found in his pocket, he was also charged with possession of a controlled substance. He was taken to jail.
