Guam Police Department spokesman Sgt. Paul Tapao said police responded to a home near the Talofofo Mayor’s Office around 12:19 p.m. Monday.

Joseph Gines Perez and a woman were arguing at the home. The woman attempted to leave with her 15-year-old daughter in her vehicle when Perez followed after them with his vehicle.

As the victim attempted to leave, Perez began ramming the victim’s car with his truck, striking the front portion multiple times, damaging the victim’s car, said Tapao.

Police later located Perez at a home in Santa Rita. Multiple guns and drugs were found within Perez’s truck.

During an interview with police, Perez indicated that the guns were stolen during a home burglary in December.

Perez was arrested and charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, family violence, child abuse, reckless conduct, burglary, possession of a firearm without a valid firearms identification, reckless driving, no driver’s license, and possession of a Schedule II controlled substance.
