A Carmichaels man is accused of holding a gun to his estranged wife’s head outside her workplace in Dry Tavern, state police said.
Three witnesses told state police Steven T. Dulik Jr., 46, went to Dry Tavern Auto at 955 N. Eighty Eight Road in Jefferson Township about 1:45 p.m. Tuesday to talk to his wife, Danielle Dulik, about him seeing their children.
Police said the two went outside the building to talk and Steven Dulik asked one of his wife’s co-workers, Joseph Milliken, to watch his daughter while they spoke.
Police said Danielle Dulik told her husband she didn’t want to talk to him. That’s when Steven Dulik allegedly grabbed her by the arm and dragged her through the parking lot. When she tried to escape, Steven Dulik put her in a headlock and held a handgun to her head, witnesses told police.
Danielle Dulik yelled for Milliken to call 911 and Steven Dulik allegedly threatened both of them by saying, “I will kill you and her,” police wrote in court documents.
Police said Milliken ran up behind Steven Dulik and pulled him to the ground, freeing Danielle Dulik, who ran across the street and into a building. Steven Dulik allegedly pointed the gun at Milliken and started chasing after his wife, before getting into a truck and leaving the scene.
“Any situation involving holding a firearm to someone’s head is a very serious situation,” state police Sgt. Steven Dowlin said. “That co-worker assisted in the endeavors of keeping her safe.”
Police said Steven Dulik does not have a permit to carry a weapon.
Dulik, of 311 Liberty St., was charged by state police with aggravated assault, firearms not to be carried without a license, two counts of terroristic threats, two counts of simple assault, two counts of recklessly endangering another person, harassment and disorderly conduct.
Dulik is being held in Greene County jail on $100,000 bond, and his preliminary hearing is scheduled before District Judge Lee Watson at 1:45 p.m. Nov. 3.
