“On 11/14/20, at approximately 10:29pm, Petaluma police officers were dispatched to the 200 block of Kentucky Street to investigate a reported domestic violence incident.
Officers responded to the area to meet with the victim. Upon arrival, officers learned the victim’s ex-boyfriend, David Trahan, had just left the area in his truck. It was believed Trahan was in the area looking for the victim. Trahan encountered the victim’s friend and pointed a handgun at her while making intimidating remarks.
Later in the evening, while the investigation was still ongoing, a Sonoma County Sheriff’s deputy located Trahan’s vehicle in the parking lot of a shopping center in Petaluma.
Petaluma officers including a K-9 officer responded and located Trahan in the vehicle. Trahan was taken into custody without incident. Multiple firearms were located in Trahan’s vehicle including a handgun, concealed in the center console, which matched the description of the gun used earlier in the evening.
Trahan was arrested and booked for 245(a)(2)P.C. (Assault w/ a Deadly Weapon), 273.5(d)P.C. (Felony Domestic Violence), and 25400(a)(1)P.C. (Carrying a Concealed Pistol in a Vehicle).”
