Washington State (Levi Pulkkinen-SeattlePi) – A Kent man accused threatening to shoot his 17-year-old daughter’s boyfriend after finding him naked in his home has been charged with assault.
King County prosecutors claim Timothy Wayne Gooden threatened to shoot the 16-year-old boy after coming home on July 11 to find the teens in his home. Gooden, 40, is also alleged to have pointed the loaded pistol at another teen in the home.
“The defendant returned home unexpectedly to find his daughter’s boyfriend and another friend were at his house,” Deputy Prosecutor Christina Miyamasu told the court. “The defendant responded by loading a round in the chamber of a pistol he held in his hand and pointing it directly at both boys.”
At 1:30 p.m. the day of the incident, Gooden’s daughter, her boyfriend and another 16-year-old boy were in the apartment when Gooden arrived. Realizing her father had returned, the girl sent her boyfriend – who’d disrobed previously – and the other youth into a bathroom to hide.
