FAIRBANKS, Alaska — A man who is accused of pointing a loaded gun at his girlfriend after she rejected his marriage proposal has been charged with felony assault, Alaska State Troopers said.

Miguel Angel Serrano-Moya’s girlfriend of three years told troopers he became enraged when she turned him down last week, so he racked the slide on his loaded pistol and pointed it at her, The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported (http://bit.ly/2vSq3gV ).

The woman told state troopers she ran out the back door of the Fairbanks roadhouse they were at and hid in bushes before a friend found her. A passing motorist picked them up.

Serrano-Moya, 25, told state troopers he was drinking and couldn’t remember anything that happened, according to court records. He was charged with felony third-degree assault, misdemeanor fourth-degree weapons misconduct and misdemeanor fourth-degree criminal mischief.

Online court records do not show that Serrano-Moya is represented by an attorney.

He remained jailed Monday at Fairbanks Correctional Center.
