Police: Vandalia man points gun at ex, threatens her

Police were called around 10:15 a.m. April 16 to the 200 block of Inverness Drive after a woman told police her ex-boyfriend, Ronald E. Simpson, had threatened her.

She said he called her to come over to pick up her personal items. When she arrived and knocked on the door, he appeared at a window, pointed a .25 silver semiautomatic handgun at her and made threats, according to the report.

Simpson wouldn’t answer his door, so police issued a court summons for aggravated menacing.

However, two days later, police were able to arrest Simpson at his home on that warrant as well as a warrant for an unrelated assault case, both through Vandalia Municipal Court, according to the police report.
