Police: Man Threatened To Kill Dearborn Co. Mother And Children

handcuff2A Dearborn County man is behind bars after authorities said he threatened to kill an Aurora woman and her two children.

Dwayne Breakiron Jr., 23, was arrested and charged with Burglary, Intimidation with a Deadly Weapon, Criminal Mischief, and Inteference with Reporting a Crime.

On Friday evening, the female victim and her children arrived at her home, however, remained in the vehicle because Breakiron was outside of her residence, Aurora Police Chief Josh Daugherty said.

“The victim looked at her rear view mirror and saw Dwayne moving quickly towards her car. She started to drive away, and he jumped on top of her vehicle and held on while she and her two young children were trying to get away from him. Dwayne finally got off and she and her children went to a friend’s house to get away,” Daugherty said.

The victim and children returned to the home during the early morning hours of Saturday. Authorities said Breakiron returned to the residence and entered the house while the family was asleep.

Daugherty said, “Dwayne came into the bedroom where they were sleeping and made the victim get out of bed. The victim said that Dwayne took her to her living room and showed her a long gun and bullets and threatened to kill them all.”

Police believe the gun was a .22 caliber rifle.

Investigators allege the children did hear the suspect tell their mother he was going to kill them with the gun, but couldn’t find the clip to put the bullets in. Breakiron tried to force the woman to help find the clip, police said.

“Dwayne made their mother give him the only cell phone in the house so that no one could call the police,” the police chief cited. Police also said the suspect threatened to strangle the family pet Chinchilla.

No word on the connection between the victim and suspect, but Police Chief Daughtery called it domestic violence in an email.
