A Village of Chatham man was arrested after a woman claimed he threatened her with a gun.

Jeffrey Joseph Dolence, 45, who lives with his parents on SE 80th Biltmore Avenue, was arrested Wednesday afternoon on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

The woman told Dolence she was going to call law enforcement and he fled.

The woman told deputies she was in fear for her life.

Dolence was taken into custody and booked at the Sumter County Detention Center where he was initially held without bond.
