A Volo man accused of threatening an 11-year-old girl and her father with a loaded gun last week is due in court Wednesday on multiple charges.

Glenford Coombs, 40, is charged with two counts of aggravated unlawful use of weapon, aggravated assault and disorderly conduct stemming from the July 26 altercation in Round Lake Park.

Authorities said Coombs was arrested in neighboring Round Lake shortly after making the threat. He later was freed from the Lake County jail after posting $10,000 bail.

Round Lake Park police said Coombs was in a woman's home in the 500 block of North Grandview Drive at 4:15 p.m. July 26 when a 32-year-old Waukegan man entered and a dispute over his presence erupted. The Waukegan man is the 11-year-old girl's father, according to authorities.

Coombs departed in a black Mercedes-Benz, police said, but quickly returned to find the man and the girl outside the house. Authorities said Coombs made a threat and pointed the loaded semiautomatic 9 mm pistol at the man and his daughter.
