DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - UPDATE 4/15: One man is in custody following an incident at a Davenport gas station.

Police say on Sunday, April 14, they were called to the Kwik Shop at 303 West Locust Street in reference to a disturbance.

Police tell TV6 that there was a domestic incident between a son and his mother's boyfriend in the 1500 block of Ripley Street. Police say the son had a knife and "possibly assaulted" his mom's boyfriend. Police say the son's mom stepped in in an attempt to break up the fight and she was assaulted as a result.

The son then ran to the Kwik Shop, according to police, where he assaulted the clerk and damaged a television. The other man who was involved left before police arrived.

The son has been identified as 27-year-old Jacob Mitchell, of Davenport.

Documents show that after police responded to the Kwik Shop it was determined that Mitchell was in possession of a device "that directs an electric current, impulse, wave or beam producing a high voltage pulse designed to immobilize a person." Police say the device was used on a female employee at the Kwik Shop and that Mitchell tried to use the device on another worker but they were able to get away.

Police say Mitchell does not have a permit or legal authority to carry that device.

Mitchell is charged with Assault While Displaying a Weapon, Carrying Weapons, Criminal Mischief 3rd-degree, Domestic Assault with Injury and Going Armed With Intent.

He is currently in custody on a $10,000 bond.
