Man arrested in domestic incident
Grand Junction police arrested Robert Daniel Maillet, 62, Saturday after his female roommate accused him of saying “I’m gonna kill you” and striking her with a blunt object, police said.
Maillet was booked into Mesa County Jail on suspicion of menacing, criminal mischief and two counts of second-degree assault with intent to do bodily harm.
