A Coon Rapids man with a history of mental health problems has been charged with a felony in Anoka County District Court for allegedly brandishing a gun.
Kyle Lee Satek, 26, was arraigned in court Sept. 20 on a terroristic threats charge. Bail was set at $100,000.
The afternoon of Sept. 19, Coon Rapids Police responded to a home on the 11900 block of Zion Street NW on a report of a man with a firearm.
According to the complaint, police were familiar with the residence because they had dealt with one of the occupants, Satek, in the past at the request of the Army and the Veterans Administration Hospital.
Police ordered Satek out of the house and he came to the door and complied.
In plain view from the open front door, police allegedly saw a .40 caliber handgun, seized it and found that it was loaded with a bullet in the chamber and 10 bullets in the magazine.
Another resident of the house told police that he lived downstairs and Satek upstairs.
He alleged that he heard Satek start yelling and when he went upstairs to see what was going on and was halfway up the stairs, Satek pointed the handgun at him and yelled at him.
En route to the jail, Satek allegedly told police it was a good thing that he was going to jail so he did not hurt anyone, and he had not been taking his mental health medications.
According to the complaint, Satek is currently in the military, but is being discharged because of mental illness.
