Whitehall Township police responded to a report of assault April 3 at 980 Fairmont Ave.

According to an affidavit of probable cause filed with District Magistrate Robert Halal’s office, police received a call 11:45 p.m. of a man in the south parking lot at 980 Fairmont Ave. causing a disturbance. When police arrived, they found Jean Pierre D’ Meza Nunez, 22, with blood on both hands.

When officers responded to the scene, a woman, allegedly D’ Meza Nunez’s former significant other, arrived at the parking area to the rear of 1010 Fairmont Ave., D’ Meza Nunez’s residence. The complaint said the woman observed D’ Meza Nunez running toward her with a gun. As she drove off, she said D’ Meza Nunez fired the gun, hitting her vehicle.

Shortly after the incident, according to the report, the woman returned to the parking lot to speak with D’ Meza Nunez. At that time, D’ Meza Nunez allegedly reached into her vehicle and choked her. The woman reportedly eventually drove away, striking D’ Meza Nunez’s vehicle.

D’ Meza Nunez then began to punch the front windshield of the woman’s vehicle, the complaint continued.

The complaint said police observed a divot and fresh paint fractures on the driver-side door of the woman’s vehicle.

D’ Meza Nunez has been charged with aggravated assault, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person, according to the report.
