Marlborough police arrested David J. McGuire Jr. Sunday after he allegedly choked a victim into unconsciousness and threatened them with a BB gun.
"David brandished a gun (BB) from a bureau drawer and chambered back the slide," wrote Officer Victor Linnell in a police report. "At this point [the victim] was in fear for her life not knowing the weapon was just a BB gun."
McGuire, 36, of 5 Mohican Path had strangled the victim until she went unconscious prior to brandishing the gun, according to court documents. When she woke up he produced the gun he stated he would kill the woman and her daughter, according to the police report.
McGuire has been held without bail on charges of attempted murder, assault with a dangerous weapon and two charges of threatening to commit a crime. He is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday.
