Gilbert, AZ – Police have arrested a man after they say he refereed a fight between his two sons and another boy while using a handgun to keep the crowd from stopping the fight.
Police say Gabriel Alberto Conde, 33, went with his two sons, ages 14 and 17, to a local park so that the younger boy could fight another 14-year-old boy.
When Conde’s son began to lose the fight, he instructed the older sibling to help his brother. While the two teens held the other boy on the ground, repeatedly kicking him in the head and breaking his jaw, Conde allegedly kept the crowd at bay by threatening them with a .45 handgun.
When police arrived at Conde’s home later, he refused to come outside until after police surrounded his residence and ordered him out using a loudspeaker.
Conde was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, threatening and intimidating, disorderly conduct with a deadly weapon and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. His two sons are facing charges of aggravated assault and disorderly conduct.Tags: Arizona, assault and battery, Crime, fight, Gabriel Alberto Conde, gun, park
