A Tulsa man was arrested Saturday after allegedly breaking into a woman's apartment and placing a gun to her mouth.
Khanthanou Phengphongsavan, 30, was taken into custody on first-degree burglary, domestic assault and battery, and pointing a deadly weapon with intent, according to his arrest report.
A woman called police at 7:38 p.m. to report Phengphongsavan kicked in her apartment door in the 7800 block of South Utica Avenue and was armed with a gun, the report said.
The woman told police that Phengphongsavan sent her threatening text messages prior to arriving at the apartment, said the report.
Phengphongsavan is accused of grabbing the woman from the apartment, pushing her against a wall and placing what appeared to be a small semiautomatic handgun to her mouth, the report said.
The report noted that Phengphongsavan told the woman "she deserved all that was coming to her" before a person described as a mutual friend intervened.
The woman was not injured during the ordeal, police said.
Phengphongsavan was arrested by police hours later at his home in the 12000 block of East 40th Street.
He is being held in the Tulsa Jail on $80,000 bond.
