A Brook Park man is facing felony charges for an alleged assault that occurred in Isanti County.
Thomas George Traywick, 38, appeared before Judge Bridgid Dowdal in Isanti County District Court in Cambridge on March 23 where he was charged with felony second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon, felony possession of ammunition-firearm, and misdemeanor dangerous weapon-intentionally point a gun.
Bail was set at $65,000 without conditions or $25,000 with conditions, and his next court date is scheduled for April 18.
According to the criminal complaint
On March 21, at approximately 9:25 a.m., Isanti County Deputy Jason Sievert met with an individual regarding a number of physical domestic incidents involving Traywick.
The victim described numerous incidents in which Traywick had fired her handgun, the most recent being March 3 when the two of them had gotten into a verbal altercation.
The victim said Traywick was yelling at her before he walked over and put the barrel of the loaded gun approximately an inch away from the left side of her face. She said she grabbed Traywick’s wrist while pulling down and couldn’t recall what led to the gun going off, but stated it had. The bullet struck the overhead garage door.
The victim stated at the time of the incident she knew the gun was loaded because the bullet in the chamber was visible. She told Sievert that Traywick was a convicted felon and he shouldn’t have a gun, but that there was usually one nearby.
The victim said she was fearful for her life, and that she “did not want it to be this way.”
Traywick’s previous felony conviction of fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance from April 2010 in Pine County, which classifies as a crime of violence, makes him ineligible to possess a firearm.
