Charges: Man kidnapped ex-girlfriend, pointed gun at St. Anthony officer

A St. Anthony man is charged with multiple felonies for allegedly kidnapping his ex-girlfriend and trying to kill her before pointing his gun at a St. Anthony police officer.

The Ramsey County Attorney's Office charged Devion Maurice Richardson, 31, Wednesday with kidnapping, second-degree attempted murder and first-degree assault on a police officer. He remains booked in the Ramsey County Jail and his next court appearance is Friday.

According to charging documents:

St. Anthony police reported to an anonymous call on June 10 that a woman was screaming for help at 3201 Diamond 8 Terrace. The woman was talking with Richardson in a courtyard at around 11:45 a.m. when officers approached and asked what was going on. Police say Richardson stood and pulled a black handgun from his waistband.
