Women Threatened By Man With Handgun

Man Pulled Handgun On 2 Women

A man was jailed early Wednesday morning after allegedly pointing a handgun at two women who had come to his residence regarding text messages sent to a boyfriend of one of them.


The incident occurred at about 12:35 am as two known females, age 19 ans 20, went to the residence of Jon Paul Gallina, 26, at 9 River Street, Apt. #2, in Roulette, PA, to speak to him about text messages that he sent to one of the victim's boyfriend.

The women knocked on the door and Gallina came to the door. The women asked about the text messages, at which time Gallina removed a handgun from his waistline underneath his shirt, and pointed the handgun at the victims.

The women then ran from the residence and called State Police.

After investigation of the incident, Gallina was taken into custody without incident.

A search warrant was executed which resulted in police finding a handgun meeting the description provided by the victims.

Gallina was arraigned at District Court 55-3-01 and bail was set at $10,000. Gallina was unable to post bail and was remanded to the Potter County Jail.

WTF, if someone showed up at my house in the middle of the night and started harrassing me, I might point a gun at them too.

What happened to the "Castle Doctrine"?

Stay classy Roulette!

To the first two posters: If someone comes to your door and all they are doing is talking - or even if they are yelling - that is no reason to pull a gun on them! Second, haven't you read the man's name on here before in police reports? Well I have. I'd be scared to death of this guy.

Where was the boyfriend here, if he was so concerned about the text, instead send two young women, he was smart, he stayed out of the mess

I can tell you now if someone comes to my door at 12:30 am yelling at me, they will shut up in a hurry. Dead men/women tell no tales.

Wait 2 people confront someone in their own house and he gets arrested. Something wrong with that.

What in the world were those young women doing knocking on this guy's door that late at night? If he is such bad news then they were just looking for trouble, IMO.

12:48 I agree with you instead of going to see the man they should have went to the police first. what were they thinking? going to someones house at that hour of the night.

1209 POSTER this is a different person then the one you are thinking of. Make sure we know who we are talking about first!!!

This is outrageous!! I hope this man sues! He is reacting to someone at his home, it is dark, those cell phones could look like revolvers, and he pulled his pistol! He was just protecting himself..they should have locked those girls away, and threw away the key!

you idiots are the reason our state wasted so much money defending the castle doctrine.

common sense kids, shut the door and call the cops. pointing a gun at someone who never entered your home isn't using the appropriate "defense" for that situation.

the next time a politition, a bill collector,my mother-in-law or any pain in my ass knock on my door, I open it and they annoy me I'm pulling out a gun pointing it at them.

makes perfect sense....

It does make perfect sense! You never know what that person is carrying that is knocking on your door, maybe a knife, gun, who knows! This man needs to be bailed out of jail now!

WTF...hopefully those girls never come to our home at midnight...we have a sign which clearly states
"property protected by Smith & Wesson"

Anonymous said...

two girls at your door, no weapons, not trying to gain entry, so do the manly thing and point a gun at them.

that's about as cowardly as they come.

psp will defend these girls for who knows why but show up at a cops home at 12:30 am and see what greets you at the door,man or women

Hell! a shot gun would have been much more meaningful !

If someone comes knocking at my door at that time of night, you can bet I will have my Colt 1911 in my hand...

Two young girls showing up at the door at 12:30 AM? Sounds kinda fishy, I bet if he would have asked them in for a good time none of this woulda happened. Maybe they're just "scorned'.

nothing but thug wanna be's.

agree 7:53!!

A dude is so scared of two girls that knock on his door that he points a gun at them??? he's some super hero...

Even though the psp troopers train in this area, are they ever sent to ghetto areas of large cities to practice what they have learned? Or, upon arriving at the scene, would they have said that they are sight officers to the people who called and told them that they must file a private criminal complaint?

ghetto training take place every six weeks for ALL law enforcement over in Bradford at the marathon center. They get plenty of sight officer, and near sighted officer training.

First of all no one mentioned how rediculous it was that this was all started by a TEXT MESSAGE. I don't know about any of you, but I would never waste my time about stupid text messages. Those girls need to find something more important worth living for. Second of all, no matter how ignorant the girls may have been, a grown man shouldn't pull a gun on two girls. If he wanted them gone that bad, he could've called the police on them and saved himself alot of trouble.

This story is actually sad for everyone. It's things like this that make alot of people ashamed to live in Roulette. There are so many good people that live in Roulette but because of this trash, everyone is judged for being like this. :((

Oh and the girls aren't victims, they went there intentionally trying to start trouble.

dingleberry said...

I totally agree those two young girls need to be jailed for knocking on that mans door in the middle of the night. im quite sure he thought they were there to do him bodily harm. god i wish two young girls would show up at my door in the middle of the night

They told who the guy was why didn't they publish the girls names??? They are of age.I guess girls can get away with it and not have their names published.They have comments about the guy why not the girls. Sometimes girls are worse thasn the guys about starting trouble.

no excuse for pulling gun he needs to grow up
