Girard man sentenced after entering home, threatening woman with gun
A Girard man will serve 4 to 6 years behind bars after a woman accused him of entering her home, taking a gun, and threatening to shoot her.
Police say that a woman was in her basement when a man entered the home unannounced, and began looking for a gun that he claimed was his.
The woman told police that 23-year-old Khaz Sallaz had previously lived at the home, but had since moved out. She also told police that when Sallaz moved out, she put the gun he left behind in a closet, as she didn't know what to do with it.
When Sallaz entered the home, police say he began yelling about the gun and throwing items around the home searching for it.
The police report states that when officers arrived at the home they saw a TV on the ground, clothes scattered around the room, and a window blind damaged as if someone had thrown something at it.
Police say that when Sallaz eventually located the firearm, he pushed the woman onto the couch and pointed it at her, threatening to shoot.
Sallaz then left the house, taking the woman's dog with him and getting into a car with another woman, according to the report.
Sallaz was indicted back in September for Aggravated Burglary and Felonious Assault with firearm specifications. He will serve his time at the Lorain Correctional Institution.
