MANCHESTER, NH – A Pembroke mother was charged with threatening her daughter with a gun after the two had a fight via text message, and the mother allegedly showed up at her daughter’s apartment on Hanover Street with a gun.

On March 16, 2017 at approximately 11:35 p.m. Officer Erik Slocum responded to 370 Hanover St. for a report of a domestic incident involving a threat with a firearm.

The alleged victim, Kayleigh Kousios, 26, told Officer Slocum that her mother, Evamarie Kousios 50, of 12 Melissa Dr., Pembroke, had come to her apartment after an argument they had on the phone and via text message.

According to the daughter’s account, her mother came into the apartment to continue the argument in a bedroom. While doing so, Evamarie pulled out a black case from her jacket that contained a semi-automatic handgun. Evamarie then allegedly pointed the firearm at Kayleigh while shouting at her.

A relative, Lynda Tremblay, also living at the Hanover Street address, heard the commotion and entered the bedroom. A struggle ensued to gain control of the firearm from Evamarie. Once Kayleigh and her aunt, Lynda Tremblay, got the firearm away from Evamarie, they secured it safely elsewhere in the apartment.

Evamarie fled the scene. New Hampshire State Police located Evamarie at her home after the incident and took her into custody at approximately 1:40 a.m. on March 17, 2017.

No one was injured as a result of this incident.

Evamarie Kousios was charged with one count each of criminal threatening (felony) and felonious use of a firearm (felony). She was admitted to a $5,000 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to appear at the 9th Circuit Court Manchester on March 17, 2017 for arraignment.
