A Vancouver man is accused of holding a gun to a woman’s head because she wouldn’t leave his home.

Ron W. Wilson, 58, appeared in Clark County Superior Court on Thursday on suspicion of second-degree assault, fourth-degree assault and felony harassment. Judge Robert Lewis held him on $40,000 bail and appointed Susan Stauffer to defend him. He’ll be arraigned on the charges Aug. 8.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Wilson and the victim, Ebony M. Thalhamer, were arguing Wednesday at Wilson’s trailer at 17403 S.E. Evergreen Highway when Wilson allegedly pointed a handgun at her face and threatened to shoot her or her car if she didn’t leave. Wilson then left and returned without the handgun to continue the argument and continue to demand that Thalhamer leave, the affidavit says. Wilson also shoved Thalhamer’s head, the affidavit says.

Wilson denied assaulting or threatening Thalhamer with a weapon.
