A Buena Vista Township man was arrested for allegedly choking his girlfriend and threatening her family with a gun in front of their baby daughter in Gloucester County last month.
Donald D. Segar Jr., 20, of the Newtonville section of the township, was charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, terroristic threats, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, possession of a weapon by a person not permitted to have one and endangering the welfare of a child, according to the county’s Prosecutor’s Office.
Segar was transported to Gloucester County jail on $25,000 bail.
Authorities say he was at his girlfriend’s apartment in Woodbury on Feb. 17 when he fired a handgun three times into the ceiling following a struggle with her family that included allegedly choking his girlfriend. This happened in front of the couple’s 1-year-old daughter, the office said.
After firing the shots, Segar fled the home. He was apprehended on Thursday in Runnemede by the Woodbury Police Department, Gloucester County Prosecutor’s fugitive unit, the Atlantic County office of the US Marshals and New Jersey State Police.
