A Cape Coral man is facing assault and battery charges after police say he threatened a man with a gun and then drove into him while leaving an altercation at the Dixie Roadhouse last month.

Anthony W. Mann, 24, of 929 S.W. 52nd Street, pointed a handgun at the victim and then drove into him with his vehicle, forcing the victim to hold on to the hood to keep from being run over, a release from the Cape Coral Police Department issued Friday states.

The victim sustained minor injuries from the incident, police said.

Cape Coral Police detectives assigned to the U.S. Marshals’ Task Force located and arrested Mann on Fort Myers Beach Friday morning. He was charged with two counts of aggravated assault w/deadly weapon without intent to kill and one count of aggravated battery w/deadly weapon. Mann was transported to the Lee County Jail where he remained in custody Friday afternoon.

Bond was set at $30,000 on each of the aggravated assault charges and at $45,000 for the aggravated battery charge.
