Dad BRENT HAROLD BORJA has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon, assault and battery, kidnapping, child abuse, interfering with a domestic violence report, violating an order of protection, disturbing the peace, contempt, and misuse of a government vehicle. Seems Daddy took a fire truck while intoxicated, beat up his wife, then took their children away on said fire truck. Somewhere along this line, the children were beat up too. What a charmer....
Tinian firefighter is arrested for domestic violence, child abuse
By Ferdie de la Torre
Police arrested on Monday a Tinian firefighter who allegedly beat up his wife and their two children several times.
Brent Harold Borja, 32, also allegedly used a Tinian Fire pickup truck while intoxicated to follow his wife and pick up their children.
Borja was brought to the Saipan Superior Court yesterday afternoon for an initial appearance on charges of assault with a dangerous weapon, three counts of assault and battery, kidnapping, two counts of child abuse, interfering with a domestic violence report, violating an order for protection, two counts of disturbing the peace, contempt, and two counts of misuse of government vehicle.
Borja's bail was set at $40,000 cash.
Detective Barbara K. Arend stated in her report that Borja's wife called Tinian police for assistance on June 10.
The wife told police that Borja slapped her and choked her on April 30 while she was inside a car. Upon reaching their house, Borja pulled her hair, choked, then locked her in the room.
On May 28, Borja, while drunk, allegedly beat up the victim, then took their children aboard a Fire pickup truck. Arend said the victim told police she did not immediately file a complaint because he would watch her until all her bruises were healed.
Borja allegedly told his wife no one would believe her because he works at DPS.
The wife said Borja also beat her up on Saipan in October last year while she was pregnant.
Two of their three children told police that they saw their father beating up their mother several times. The two said their father also beats them up using any objects and shouts at them and their mother.
Superior Court associate judge Ramona V. Manglona had issued on March 29, 2010, a protection order barring Borja from having direct or indirect contact with his wife.
