Front Royal police arrested a town resident Sunday, charging him with being a felon in possession of a firearm and obstruction of justice/witness intimidation charges, according to a press release.

Marcus Lewis, 51, entered a home carrying a handgun and wearing a mask on Saturday, according to the release.

Capt. Crystal Cline declined to comment on what Lewis said or did while he was in the house, but said he did know the person living there.

Last month, Lewis was arrested and charged with assault and battery after he allegedly threw an unknown liquid onto a man while he was walking home from work. Cline said Lewis entered that man’s home over the weekend, intending to intimidate him from testifying as a witness in last month’s case.

Lewis is being held without bond at the Rappahannock-Shenandoah-Warren Regional Jail.

His next court appearance on the assault and battery charge is June 11.

He will appear in court on the firearm possession and witness intimidation charges on June 18.
