CYPRESS, Texas — A Cypress man was arrested Halloween night after pulling a gun out on two young trick-or-treaters and threatening to shoot them, the Harris County Constable Pct. 4 said.

Christopher Edwards, 33, is charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Investigators said Edwards was under the influence when he approached the two juveniles.

Both children were able to break away from the suspect and report the incident to adults, officers said.

Edwards was later found standing near the doorway of his home with his wife, deputies said. When officers tried to speak with him, investigators said Edward grabbed his wife and pulled her inside against her will. He shut the door and locked it, but officers were able to force it open and arrest him.

Edwards was found with a semi-automatic pistol, investigators said.

Edwards has paid his $30,000 bond, according to county records.

He is due back in court on Dec. 19.
