Arrest in Taser sex-assault attempt

D.C. police have made an arrest of a Montgomery County man who they said used a Taser in a break-in and attempted sexual assault of a woman in Northwest Washington.

Fifty-year-old Paul Mannina, of Ashton, Md., was charged Wednesday with assault with intent to commit first-degree sexual assault while armed and burglary while armed. Police said he knocked on a door of a residence about 10 a.m. on June 5, and attempted to sexually assault the victim using the Taser and pepper spray. Police said the victim knew Mannina.

A D.C. man was found guilty of second-degree murder while armed in the 2011 shooting death of his stepson.

Ronald Page, 60, was in an argument with his 17-year-old son and stepson, Nicholas Satcher, at their family home in Northeast Washington on the evening of Jan. 5, 2011. Page then got a gun and pointed it at both young men, ordering Satcher to leave the room. Page then followed Satcher and fired the gun, fatally wounding his stepson, prosecutors said.
