Austin man sentenced to prison time on assault and drug possession charges in Mower County District Court

An Austin man convicted for pointing a rifle at a woman during an incident in September of 2018 has been sentenced to prison time and supervised probation in Mower County District Court.  

33-year old Angel Manuel Delgado was sentenced Thursday to three years in prison, with credit for 235 days already served, and five years of supervised probation.

Delgado was arrested in September 2018 after a woman accused him of shooting at her with an Airsoft pistol and pointing a 9 mm rifle at her. The woman told authorities that Delgado had been staying with her for approximately six weeks and had been acting erratic and paranoid, pointing the rifle out the window at vehicles driving by.

Austin Police reported that a search of Delgado’s bedroom turned up two Airsoft pistols, the 9 mm rifle, eight clonazepam pills and a marijuana bong.

Delgado pleaded guilty in September 2019 to charges of 2nd degree assault and 5th degree drug possession.
