(Stillwater, Okla.) — A Stillwater man accused of a home invasion, in which the occupant was choked and threatened with death, remains jailed on $25,000 bail pending a court appearance with an attorney this week on a three-count charge.
The victim said he had never before seen his assailant, who he believed intended to kill him, an affidavit said.
The defendant, Eduardo Gonzalez Pulido, 44, said, “it’s judgment day m….. f…..” and “I’m your worst nightmare,” and “threaten my girl again,” the victim told police, an affidavit alleged.
Pulido was arrested one minute before midnight on April 30, about an hour after two officers were sent to a Stillwater apartment complex, according to an affidavit by Stillwater Police Investigator Bryan Luginbill filed in court records on May 2.
“The victim reported seven people had come into his house and he was choked and assaulted,” before he was able to get to his bedroom where he had a shotgun and the suspects were yelling at his roommates, before they left in an unknown direction, the affidavit alleged.
Stillwater Police Officer Christopher Hummel saw a car driving from the area of the apartment complex that was overloaded with eight occupants and made a traffic stop at Mercury and Perkins Road, the affidavit said.
“Officer Hummel spoke to the occupants briefly about their whereabouts and he received varying answers to include driving around aimlessly and just coming from Oak Park Village apartment complex,” the affidavit alleged.
The victim told Stillwater Police Officer Chance Whiteley that after “he heard a loud, forceful knock on the west door, he opened the door as a man barged in, knocking the door out of his hand. The man then grabbed him by the throat and pushed him against the wall while several other people ran inside the apartment as well,” the affidavit alleged.
The victim said “he struggled to break free, but the suspect pushed him to the ground, still pushing against him throat,” before he finally broke free, the affidavit alleged.
When the victim was taken to the scene of the traffic stop where the occupants were standing outside the car, he identified Pulido as the suspect “that forcefully entered into his house, assaulted him and made threats to harm him,” the affidavit alleged.
If convicted of all counts, Pulido could be incarcerated for 30 years plus 90 days and fined $20,500, court records show.
