A 24-year-old Abilene man is facing an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge for allegedly assaulting and pointing a loaded gun at a victim.

Samuel Moore is being held in Taylor County Jail on a $30,000 bond.

Moore was arrested at a west Abilene home Monday afternoon after he allegedly pulled the victim's hair and choked and bit them. According to police, Moore grabbed a loaded handgun from his bed and pointed it at the victim's face. The victim's injuries were visible, police said.

Police say Moore later admitted that he knew the handgun was kept loaded -- with a round in the chamber.
