Cumberland man faces domestic assault, firearms charges

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — A Cumberland man is facing domestic assault and illegal firearms charges after he was arrested back in February.

Attorney General Peter Neronha said 31-year-old Pablo Cintron was charged with six counts of possession of a large capacity magazine, one count of domestic assault and one count of domestic disorderly conduct back in May.

Cumberland police said on Feb. 16 of this year, a woman reported an incident of domestic violence that happened between her and her husband, identified as Cintron.

The victim told police a verbal argument escalated into a physical altercation when Cintron allegedly pushed his wife to the floor, causing her to hit her head. Cintron then allegedly took a gun from his safe and pointed it at himself before putting it back.

Neronha said the victim left their apartment and reported to work, where later that morning, one of the victim’s coworkers called police after Cintron showed up. He was arrested shortly after.

Cintron allowed police to remove the guns from his home because of the domestic incident From his safe, police said they took a Glock 19, 9mm semi-automatic pistol, a Sig Saur SIG 516 5.56-caliber semi-automatic rifle and six large-capacity magazines.

Cintron is scheduled to appear in Super Court later this month.
