Dad arrested for firing gun into bedroom where 18-month-old daughter sleeping (Reading, Pennsylvania)

What a lovely father. Dad LUIS V. SANABRIA was miffed that his former 16-year-old girlfriend had a new boyfriend, so to show what her what a mistake she had made in rejecting Daddy's charming self, he fired his gun at a second floor window. The bullet hit the ceiling above the baby's crib. Well, I'm sure that really showed Mom all the good times she's missing by not staying with Daddy's violent @$$.

Bullet fired into toddler's room; father charged

An 18-year-old Reading man was arrested after he fired a gun into the bedroom where his 18-month-old daughter was sleeping, city police said Tuesday.

Luis V. Sanabria was arguing with the child's grandmother on the porch of her residence in the 500 block of Spring Street on Monday about 9:30 p.m., police said.

Sanabria of the 500 block of North Eighth Street stepped off the porch, pointed the handgun at a second-floor window and fired one shot, investigators said.

The bullet went through the window and hit the ceiling above the baby's crib, investigators said.

No one was injured.

Police gave this further account:

Sanabria initially argued over the telephone with the child's 16-year-old mother about her new boyfriend. She told him to leave her alone and hung up.

Sanabria went to her home, where the child's grandmother stopped him on the porch.

Police withheld the names of the grandmother and her daughter.

Sanabria was arrested in the 600 block of Spring Street shortly after the shooting.

He was charged with aggravated and simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, discharging a firearm into an occupied structure and firearms offenses.

Sanabria was committed to Berks County Prison in lieu of $75,000 bail after arraignment before Senior District Judge Gloria W. Stitzel in Reading Central Court.
