Gun-wielding man faces multiple charges

A Sonoma man is facing multiple felony charges after he reportedly held an acquaintance at gunpoint at his Hyde Road residence.

At around 8 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 15, a man called 9-1-1 to report he had been assaulted and held at gunpoint by Jason Kurtz, 32, at the residence in the 21000 block of Hyde Road.

Sonoma county deputies responded, but by that time Kurtz had fled the scene.

Deputies returned the next evening when neighbors called to say that Kurtz had rammed the gate into the residence. Kurtz was still there when deputies arrived, and he was arrested on charges of felony false imprisonment, felony assault with a deadly weapon – a gun, felony being a prohibited person from owning a firearm and a probation violation.

Kurtz was booked into Sonoma County Jail.
