Sulphur Springs Police Department arrested a 19 year old Justin Arley Bryant of Sulphur Springs for Aggravated Assault with Deadly Weapon last night.
SSPD responded to reports of a female being held against her will at gunpoint at Buford Park around 7:30 pm. The victim told officers that she and Bryant had an argument over ending their relationship at a residence. During the disturbance, Bryant allegedly discharged the firearm out of an open window and then pointed the gun to her head. He also allegedly put the firearm against the victim’s mouth.
The victim told officers that she attempted to change the subject and told Bryant that she wanted to go play volleyball and get something to eat. They left the residence and proceeded to the park. The victim then texted a friend and asked them to call the police.
