Forsyth County Deputies have arrested a man from Suwanee for allegedly threatening several south Forsyth teens with a handgun after a verbal dispute that took place on Friday.

Rounak Dey, 20, of Suwanee was arrested on August 3 after parents reported to police that four minors were threatened with a gun at the clubhouse of the Riverbrook subdivision in Suwanee, according to Cpl. Doug Rainwater of the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.

Rainwater said they believe that Dey was allegedly looking for a teen that lived in the Riverbrook subdivision with whom he had a previous disagreement and threatened the four individuals for information about finding him.

After the gun was produced, Rainwater said the individuals fled the scene and called 911.

Rainwater said a lookout was placed for Dey’s truck, and shortly after he was located at the intersection of Highway 20 and James Burgess Road. Dey was arrested after witnesses were interviewed by investigators.

No one was injured during the incident and the weapon allegedly used was not recovered, Rainwater said.

Dey has been charged with aggravated assault with a gun and carrying a weapon without a license. Currently, he has no bond.
