  Warrant Arrested: Random L. Navarro, 21, Boise

   Warrant Charges:  Aggravated Assault (F)

    Random Navarro was taken into custody on an outstanding felony warrant for Aggravated Assault early this morning (August 27th) at approximately 1:40 a.m.

    The arrest warrant stems from an incident that took place on August 24th of this year at a residence on the 4000 block of West Garnet Street. On that date the victim who is well known to the suspect had been involved in an ongoing dispute. The suspect showed up at a party taking place in the residence and during the confrontation the suspect displayed a handgun and made verbal threats to the victim. That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.
