Wielding a revolver, paranoid and high on methamphetamine is how victims of an alleged assault described Joshua Diel.
Claremore Police Department reports show that Diel, of Inola, is facing multiple felony charges following an alleged incident on June 21. Criminal charges were filed in Rogers County District Court Wednesday.
CPD records show that witnesses say Diel "came home and was high on methamphetamine and very paranoid."
Diel was reportedly confronted by one of the alleged victims about "stealing some of his property" at which time "Diel presented a small revolver and pointed it at his head and chest."
Officers report, "[The alleged victim] stated that Diel called him a snitch and held him in the apartment for over three hours against his will. He stated that every time he tried to leave the apartment Diel would point the gun at him and threaten to kill him if he didn't' sit back down."
The man told officers he was ultimately able to escape when Diel went to the back of the residence.
Diel is facing possible charges of assault and battery with a deadly weapon, two counts, kidnapping and possession of a firearm after conviction of a felony.
Charges are filed after former felony conviction as Diel has prior assault and battery with a dangerous weapon charges in Tulsa County and is currently out on bond for possession of a firearm after conviction of a felony.
