A 30-year-old Andover man was arraigned Oct. 2 in Anoka County District Court on a felony second-degree assault charge for allegedly pointing a handgun at another man.
Luke William Dobrava, 16120 University Ave. N.W., will make his next court appearance Oct. 31.
According to the complaint, the victim told police that Dobrava came to his Ham Lake home sometime after 2 a.m. Sept. 30, but Dobrava would later deny that he went to the home that evening and told the arresting officer that there was not enough evidence to arrest him.
The complaint alleges that Dobrava and the man had an argument involving conduct that had allegedly taken place between the man and his sister years ago. Dobrava is now dating the man’s sister and allegedly asked the man to apologize to his sister.
When the man refused, Dobrava allegedly pulled out a handgun and pointed it at him, according to the complaint.
The two allegedly wrestled over the gun for some time before Dobrava put the gun in his back waist. The man went into the bathroom and called 911 and Dobrava left the Ham Lake home.
Authorities later arrested Dobrava without incident at his Andover home.
An Anoka County District Court judge signed a search warrant and police allegedly found a handgun under the futon bed in the living room.
