A Turlock man is facing several criminal charges after allegedly holding three people at gunpoint over an ongoing dispute.
Vincent Guiang, 34, was booked into Stanislaus County Jail on charges of assault with a deadly weapon, three counts of making criminal threats, and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Around 10:30 a.m. Sunday the Turlock Police Department received a call from a person saying they and two others had been held at gunpoint in the front yard of a home in the 600 block of Wolfe Avenue.
The incident began when Guiang arrived at the residence and demanded to talk to an individual he had been in an altercation with the previous night, said Turlock Police spokesperson Officer Steve Rodrigues.
At some point Guiang allegedly pushed the victim to the ground and then pulled out a gun and ordered the victim to stay on the ground. Two other people came out of the house and Guiang ordered them on the ground as well, Rodrigues said.
Guiang allegedly made several threatening comments of violence to the victims, according to the police report.
One of the victims was able to escape and ran into the home and called the police. Guiang had fled from the area before police arrived, but was located the following day in the same area.
Guiang remains in custody in lieu of a $300,000 bail.
