Brookville Man Accused of Threatening to Shoot Victim in Head During Domestic Dispute

KNOX TOWNSHIP, Pa. (EYT) – A Brookville man is facing charges after he allegedly threatened to shoot a female victim during a domestic dispute.

According to court documents, 53-year-old Douglas A. Ferguson has been charged with the following offenses:

  • Terroristic Threats W/Intent To Terrorize Another, Misdemeanor 1
  • Harassment – Subject Other to Physical Contact, Summary

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 9:15 a.m. on March 5 with Judge Gregory M. Bazylak presiding.

Ferguson is currently free on $25,000.00 monetary bail posted by a professional bondsman.

According to a criminal complaint, around 5:54 p.m. on February 8, Trooper Mosier, of Punxsutawney-based State Police, responded to a residence on Knoxdale Road, in Knox Township, Jefferson County, for the report of a domestic incident.

The female victim told Trooper Mosier that during an argument between herself and Douglas Ferguson, she told Ferguson that she was leaving him. She related that he said “he would shoot her in the head,” the complaint states.

She also reported that he picked up a laptop and broke it and took her car keys.

Douglas Ferguson was interviewed, and he related that he and the known woman began arguing, and she threatened him that she “was going to take half of everything.” As a result, he “broke the computer out of rage.”

He was lodged in the Jefferson County Jail after failing to post $25,000.00 cash bail on February 8; however, he was released on February 11 after his bail was posted.
