A 46-year-old man was behind bars Monday for allegedly threatening a victim with a loaded rifle in Riverside.

Thomas Domoslai, of Riverside, was arrested around 11 a.m. Sunday after police responded to a call regarding an argument at an automotive repair business in the 6200 block of Rutland Avenue, according to Riverside Police Department Officer Ryan Railsback.

Domoslai, who lives on the property, allegedly retrieved a rifle during the argument and pointed it at an employee and threatened to kill him. The employee fled the business and called 911, reporting that Domoslai was still on the property.

Authorities using an armored rescue vehicle and drone responded to the scene to make contact with Domoslai, who was taken into custody. A subsequent search of the property yielded five rifles, ammunition and various gun parts in Domoslai’s room, according to Railsback.

Domoslai was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside on $25,000 bail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, exhibiting a firearm and making criminal threats.

Jail records indicate he will make his initial court appearance on Wednesday at the Riverside Hall of Justice.
