YPD: Man threatens to kill woman by igniting roach killer

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A Youngstown man is facing charges of aggravated menacing after being accused of threatening his girlfriend with roach killer. 

According to a report, the victim said she woke up around 12:30 Tuesday morning and found her boyfriend, Edward Hunter, "sitting in a laundry basket in her bedroom, spraying ant and roach killer on the floor trying to ignite it." 

The victim said Hunter had been acting strange when he showed up at her house earlier and then allegedly told her, "You're dying tonight," and "I came back to blow your brains out."

The victim also told authorities that Hunter left in a 2015 silver Chevrolet Malibu just before the police arrived. 

Police say they stopped Hunter after he drove past the victim's house on East Ravenwood Avenue. 

According to the police report, Hunter said, "The two had just broken up, and she did not take it very well," but that he did not make any threats. 

Police say they searched the vehicle Hunter was in but did not find any weapons, so they advised him to go home for the night. 

However, authorities say Hunter drove back onto East Ravenwood Avenue after being told to leave the victim alone, so police arrested him. 

Hunter is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday morning.
