SYCAMORE – A Chicago man accused of threatening someone with a handgun in September in DeKalb and assaulting a family member in December had his bond set at $20,000 on Thursday.

Darris J. Flores, 24, of the 4500 block of North Troy Street in Chicago, is charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, aggravated assault on public property, domestic battery and obstructing identification. If convicted of the weapon charge, Flores could face one to three years in prison.

Police said in court records that in September, Flores was carrying a loaded pistol at the Stop and Shop Food Mart at 708 E. Lincoln Highway, and that he lifted his shirt to reveal the gun in front of a man and asked if he wanted to die.

Records also show in December, Flores was with a woman at a hotel when he punched her in the back of the head. The victim asked to use the front desk phone to call 911, but Flores grabbed the phone and threw it on the floor, breaking it, the records show.

Before he was arrested Wednesday, Flores attempted to provide a false name to a police officer, records show.

He is due back in court March 16.
