RIVERSIDE – Police arrested and charged a Riverside woman for threatening to kill her husband in a domestic altercation, according to a Riverside Police Department news release.

Susan D. Remiyas, 51, of the 300 block of East Quincy Street, Riverside, was charged Oct. 27 with domestic battery, aggravated assault, unlawful possession of ammunition and possession of ammunition and weapons without a FOID card.

The Riverside Police Department received a call at 10:44 p.m. Oct. 27 reporting a domestic battery in progress in a house. The man who called said that his wife had pointed a weapon at him during an altercation and that he was waiting outside because she was inside with firearms, the release stated.

When officers arrived they were met by the caller who said that he had been arguing with his wife when she ran upstairs, grabbed a gun, came downstairs, pointed the gun at him and told him that if she knew how to load that gun, she would kill him, according to the release.

After setting up a perimeter and calling Remiyas, they were able to persuade her to exit the house. Inside, police recovered five rifles or shotguns, two handguns and over 1,000 rounds of ammunition, police said.

Some of the weapons were in plain view of police officers, and one handgun was fully loaded with once round in the chamber. All the weapons were confiscated and logged into evidence.

Investigators are running all serial numbers to track down the history of the weapons and testing them for any unsolved crimes, the release stated.

According to police, both Remiyas and her husband were intoxicated during the dispute and were very uncooperative during the police investigation.

Remiyas was taken to the Riverside Police Department where it was learned that neither she nor her husband had a FOID card.
