PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- A Prescott man is accused of assaulting his live-in girlfriend's two children.
Michael Gentilcore, 25, was booked into Yavapai County Jail on suspicion of aggravated assault, criminal damage, assault and disorderly conduct.
Prescott police officers responded to a domestic violence call at the couple's apartment Monday night.
Police were told that Gentilcore became upset with his girlfriend's 7-year-old son and hit him in the stomach and pulled his hair.
The boy's 15-year-old sister attempted to defend her brother and Gentilcore allegedly put her in a headlock and punched her in the face several times.
An 18-year-old friend was visiting the apartment and attempted to restrain Gentilcore but was also punched in the face several times, according to police.
Gentilcore reportedly punched a hole in a wall of the apartment then fled the scene before officers arrived.
Gentilcore was located at a friend's home Tuesday morning and was taken into custody.
