Maricopa resident Ramon Nunez arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault. Submitted

Ramon Nunez, 29, of Maricopa, was arrested near Burkett Avenue and Pershing Street Tuesday on suspicion of aggravated assault after a residential break-in the day before, according to the Maricopa Police Department.

MPD officers first started searching for Nunez Sunday after officers responded to a call from a man who lives in the 44000 block of West Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway.

The resident had returned to his house to find the door kicked in and the suspect, whom he identified, inside.

Witnesses told police the suspect pointed a handgun at the resident’s brother and verbally threatened both of them.

Although the suspect left the scene before MPD arrived, the resident and his brother were able to give officers a good description and tell them in which direction he fled.

After Nunez was taken into custody, officers executed a search warrant on his home where they recovered a handgun, drug paraphernalia and a stolen vehicle.

Nunez is a prohibited possessor of a firearm.

Additional charges are pending the completion of the investigation and other people may be involved, according to a MPD press release.
