PRINCE WILLIAM CO. – A man was arrested after police say he punched a woman and threatened her with a gun during an argument.

Officers responded to an apartment in the 14300 block of Bellona Road in Woodbridge Monday around 12:50 a.m. to investigate an assault.

The 30-year-old victim told police that 23-year-old Marcus Richardson, of Temple Hills, Maryland, punched her and threatened her with a gun during an argument.

The two separated and Richardson fled the apartment before officers arrived.

Police found him shortly after and arrested him and recovered his gun.

Richardson is charged with malicious wounding, domestic assault and battery and brandishing a firearm. He is being held without bond.
