MUNCIE, Ind. —
An Anderson teenager accused of holding a loaded gun to his girlfriend's head is being held in Delaware County Jail.
Quincy M. Malone, 18, of the 1500 block of Arrow Avenue, faces several felony charges in connection with the incident on Thursday, during which Muncie police claim he hit his girlfriend, pulled a gun on her and later resisted and tried to elude officers. As of Tuesday night, Malone was still incarcerated.
All told, Malone faces charges of criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon, identity deception, obliterating ID marks on a handgun, carrying a handgun without a license, intimidation, domestic battery, disorderly conduct, resisting law enforcement and battery on a law enforcement officer. Police learned of the alleged incident after Malone's girlfriend contacted police at about noon on Thursday.
According to documents from Muncie Police Department, the woman told police that Malone punched her in the face and tried to break her arm during an altercation. She struggled with Malone before he pulled out a handgun, pointed it at her face, then ran from the apartment in the 400 block of Jackson Street in Muncie.
Shortly after the report was made, officers tracked down Malone on a bike. When they attempted to stop him for questioning, he allegedly made a motion like he was reaching for the handgun, and tried several times to escape from officers who were trying to pin him down.
The report also says that once he was in custody Malone began spitting blood onto an officer.
Malone, who has no handgun permit, was allegedly found in possession of a .40 caliber Taurus PT AFS.
Malone has another felony case pending in Madison County. He was charged with intimidation, residential entry and battery in December and is scheduled for a trial in September.
