Local man charged with terrorizing Gering family

Police said Gauna told the woman he was going to take his son and forcibly kept her from leaving the house while wielding a knife and threatening to kill himself.

Police say after the victim was able to get out the back door, Gauna got into a fight with her father, threw rocks at her car and repeatedly said he was going to kill the family.

auna is being held on $50,000 bond with a ten percent cash provision.
