NASHUA — A Nashua man was arrested on a felony warrant for criminal threatening with a deadly weapon after an incident involving an Uber driver last month, authorities said.

Carlos Dejesus, 37, was taken into custody by the Nashua Police Department on June 18, after detectives identified him as the suspect who allegedly pointed a firearm at an Uber driver on May 7.

According to the police, the driver had just completed a fare when Dejesus, driving alongside, brandished a firearm and attempted to force the driver to pull over.

The subsequent investigation by the Criminal Investigation Division revealed that Dejesus erroneously believed the driver was on a date with his girlfriend.

Detectives secured an arrest warrant for Dejesus, who is also a convicted felon and is prohibited from possessing a deadly weapon.

He faces additional charges for being a felon in possession of a dangerous weapon.

Dejesus was held on preventative detention and is scheduled for arraignment at the 9th Circuit – District Division – Nashua Court on June 20 at 1 p.m.

The Nashua Police Department urges anyone with additional information about the incident to contact their Crime Line at (603)-589-1665.
