DURHAM — A Durham man is facing a string of charges after he allegedly beat and threatened a woman as her 7-year-old son watched.
James Thomas Daye, 40, of 200 Lodge St. was being held in the Durham County jail without bail on charges that include: assault with a deadly weapon with a minor present, felony stalking, first-degree kidnapping, assault inflicting serious injury, possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of a stolen gun, communicating threats and interfering with emergency communications.
On Aug. 27, according to warrants, Daye pointed a stolen pistol at Angelina Minor in her home while "herding" her and her son throughout the house.
He shoved her onto a bed and against a sink and toilet in the bathroom, according to warrants.
She suffered cuts and bruises and told police she couldn't move for 10 minutes because the pain was too severe.
He told her he would break her back and told her to get off the phone when she called police, according to warrants.
