A Clairton man has waived to court assault and firearms charges stemming from a domestic incident.

Terry Julian, 32, is charged with burglary, firearms not to be carried without a license, two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of recklessly endangering another person and two counts of terroristic threats.

Online court documents indicate Julian waived his case to court at Magisterial District Judge Pat A. Capolupo's office on Wednesday, Glassport Magisterial District Judge Armand A. Martin recused himself on Tuesday.

Formal arraignment is scheduled for Sept. 3 at 11 a.m.

Clairton police investigating the July 4 incident on Eighth Street said Julian allegedly entered the residence through a back door and did not have permission to be there.

Two women who were at the residence alleged that Julian brandished a firearm and ordered everyone to leave.

One woman told police that Julian sent a picture of a firearm in the waistband of khaki pants to her cellphone five minutes prior to his arrival.

Julian's father told police that his other son had a firearm that had been reported missing.

Julian later told police he had hidden the gun, then showed officers where it was located, according to court documents.

Police said Julian and the recovered firearm matched the cellphone photo.

Julian's bail was reduced from $50,000 to 10 percent of $10,000, and that $1,000 was posted Wednesday, according to court records.
