A St. Charles man faces multiple charges after he reportedly drove a pickup truck toward a family member.
Gervacio David Martinez-Martinez, 24, of the 1900 block of Wessel Court, was charged at 6:24 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013, with simple assault, reckless conduct, resisting/obstructing a peace officer, and no driver’s license.
According to a police report on the incident, police initially were called to the 2000 block of Wessel Court on a domestic disturbance report at 5:52 p.m., where they met a 64-year-old St. Charles woman who told police through a translator that she was walking with two children along the 2100 block of Prairie Street on her way home when she saw Martinez-Martinez driving a white Ford pickup. She told police that when he saw her, he accelerated quickly toward her, squealing the tires. She grabbed the two children, both 4 years old, and got out of the way.
Police said they initially arrested Martinez-Martinez on the no driver’s license charge, but he resisted being handcuffed. He told police he had been having problems with family members, but denied trying to hit the woman with the truck.
He posted $150 cash bond and was released pending an Oct. 17, 2013 court appearance.
