(ABC 6 News) – Rochester police arrested a man in Apache Mall who allegedly planned to shoot his ex-girlfriend at the place he believed she worked.

At about 5:40 p.m. Monday, Nov. 14, officers responded to the mall after receiving a call about a man who had threatened to kill his ex-girlfriend, who had a gun on his person.

According to Rochester police, the man had threatened the woman’s life previously and had showed her photos of his weapon.

Capt. Casey Moilanen with the Rochester Police Department said Jalen Malik Davis, 22, was located on a bench in front of Champs Sports, near the store where he thought the woman worked.

Davis, of Champaign, Illinois, was allegedly wearing a ski mask inside the heated mall and had a glove on his right hand.

Davis was engrossed in his phone, Moilanen said, and officers “grabbed” him and arrested him without incident.

According to Rochester police, Davis had a loaded 9mm handgun on his person, with no permit to carry.

He was arrested and taken to the Adult Detention Center, where he faces charges of felony threats of violence, carrying a firearm without a permit, domestic assault, and harassment.
