Police say a Geneva man was arrested a second time in less than a month after threatening a person with a gun at a residence in the city and resisting arrest.

According to a news release, David Walker, 42, of Geneva was arrested for menacing, resisting arrest, and criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Police say the charges stem from an investigation into a report of a man with a gun at a residence in the city.


Officers learned that Walker brandished a handgun and menaced another person with it. When officers tried to speak with Walker – he fled on foot, leading to a brief chase.

He was quickly apprehended, and after, police realized Walker was on pre-trial release from another arrest in late-January.

In that separate incident, Walker is accused of forcible touching. They say that first arrest took place on January 24.
