Three people held a 31-year-old Tacoma woman at gunpoint and assaulted her, breaking her nose Tuesday night when she demanded her ex-boyfriend return their children, police said Wednesday.
The incident started about 1 p.m. when the woman called her ex and asked him to pick their two children up from a relative’s house. He called back and said he intended to keep the girls and went to the woman’s house, demanding their belongings, police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said.
The ex-boyfriend returned to the woman’s house about 8 p.m. with his current girlfriend and a friend. When the victim again demanded her children back and refused to hand over their things, the two men held guns to her head while shoving her against the hood of her minivan, police said.
The current girlfriend then tackled the victim, punched her repeatedly in the face and kicked her in the back and stomach, Cool said.
The woman eventually agreed to give up her daughters’ things, and her ex-boyfriend said he’d return. He didn’t, but police identified two of the suspects. Neither was in email@example.com
