PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - Police have received a judge’s permission to remove guns from a pawn shop owned by a New Hampshire man accused of assaulting a woman and threatening police.

Police said they received a domestic violence complaint on Saturday and by the time they arrived, the suspect had fled. Police said he tried to call the victim while she was the hospital and later told officers that if anyone tried to arrest him, law enforcement would have to shoot him. Officers also learned that he was an avid marksman and gun collector.

The suspect, identified as 70-year-old George Rinalducci, was arraigned Monday. He’s asked for a lawyer.
