On or about February 6, 2020, at approximately 2:20 PM, Victim 1 was walking home from school with her boyfriend in Yarmouth. Victim 1 arrived at her home to a man later identified as the Defendant, Jonathan Fleischmann, who claimed to be from the electric company and was there to let her know that the power was going to shut off to her house. When the defendant walked away from her, Victim 1 opened her garage door and walked inside. As she turned, the defendant, now wearing a ski mask on top of his head, came into the garage behind her and pulled out a gun. The Defendant told Victim 1 to get in the house. Victim 1 tried to run out of the garage, but the Defendant grabbed her by the arm. Victim 2 heard Victim 1 screaming and ran to the garage. After seeing Victim 2 running towards them, the Defendant let go of Victim 1, ran down the driveway and out onto the street. Victim 2 chased after the Defendant and while running, the Defendant pointed the gun in the air
back towards Victim 2, causing Victim 2 to stop chase for fear of being shot.

Yarmouth Police were called and responded to the scene. During a video canvass, police located a camera on a house near Victim 1’s home. Upon reviewing the video, officers observed a man matching Victim 1’s description running down the street. Victim 1 identified the defendant in a photo array on March 10, 2020.
