Police: Man tased after assaulting girlfriend with skateboard, firing gun

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) -

A Salisbury man was tased by police after officers say he assaulted his sleeping girlfriend with a skateboard and fired shots in an apartment.

According to Salisbury Police, officers were called to an apartment complex along the 100-block of Clancy Street around 6:23 a.m. Friday morning to the reports of shots fired.

Officers say they saw 21-year-old Bryan Javier Ascencion walking down the steps of the apartment breezeway carrying a 12 gauge shotgun and a blanket.

Ascencion didn't comply with officer commands, police say, but eventually dropped the weapon and went towards a Ford Explorer with the blanket.

When he got into the vehicle and tried to drive off, he was tased and taken into custody, police told WBTV.

Police say Ascencion had earlier been arguing with his girlfriend, who later went to bed.  That's when he reportedly began hitting her with a skateboard and his fist.

She left the apartment, with her two children who were inside at the time of the beating, and Ascencion began shooting a gun inside the apartment.

According to police, at least four of the bullets went through to the next apartment. No one in the neighboring apartment was hurt, but one woman was narrowly missed.

"In one apartment the lady was sleeping and it went right across, went through the headboard," Captain Shelia Lingle told WBTV.

Ascencion was charged with shooting into an occupied dwelling, assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, resist obstruct and delay, assault on a female and discharging a firearm in the city limits.

He was placed in the Rowan County Detention Center and is being held without bond.
