A Tipton man is behind bars on charges he allegedly forced his way into a home and held a gun to a man's head.
William K. Henshey, 29, of 775 Bell-Tip Road walked into a home on the 300 block of Decker Lane at just after 7 p.m. Sunday and put a silver Taurus .45-caliber handgun to the head of the homeowner and threatened the man, Henshey's arrest papers note.
Henshey was pushed out the door by the man, who then retrieved a shotgun and shells while his wife called 911, state police said.
Henshey told police after his arrest he was at the home because he thought the man had stolen something of his, and although he admitted showing up with the pistol, he denied pointing it at the homeowner.
Police said the gun was not registered in Henshey's name, and he told police he bought it from a friend several months ago but didn't transfer the gun through a licensed gun dealer.
Along with felony burglary and criminal mischief charges, Henshey is also charged with misdemeanor charges of simple assault, terroristic threats and failing to transfer sale of a gun.
A preliminary hearing is slated for Oct. 30, and Henshey remains in Blair County Prison on $75,000 cash bail set by Magisterial District Paula Aigner.
