A compliance officer of the Department of Commerce was arrested for allegedly threatening to kill his common-law wife with a knife in front of their 4-year-old daughter at their home in Kagman last week.
Erwin Paul Togawa, 40, was arrested for assault with a dangerous weapon, assault, and disturbing the peace.
Superior Court Associate Judge Joseph N. Camacho on Thursday imposed a $25,000 cash bail and set the preliminary hearing for tomorrow, Tuesday, at 1:30pm.
Police detective Melissa Bauleong stated in her report that the victim went to the Department of Public Safety on Wednesday to file a complaint against Togawa.
According to the victim, Togawa pulled out a knife from his waist pouch, pointed it at her and threatened to kill her. The victim said their daughter started to cry and covered her head with a blanket.
The victim also told police that on May 10, 2012, during an argument, she took her daughter and walked out of the house. Togawa allegedly followed them on a car and threatened to run over them if they don't get in the car. She said she later heard the car drive behind her, nearly hitting them.
On Wednesday, police officers went to the Department of Commerce where they escorted Togawa out and arrested him. Police allegedly recovered from the defendant a knife.
