Toledo man charged in shooting incident

A South Toledo man was arrested yesterday on an outstanding firearms charge after police found him hiding in the woods behind his house.

Mansor Asad, 38, of 816 Southbriar Rd., was booked into the Lucas County jail on a misdemeanor firearms charge.

He was released from the jail after posting a $50 bond four hours after police went to his house about 7:15 a.m. on a report of a man who was acting strange and lying in the front yard with a camouflage outfit.

Officers saw him walking in the yard with a long pole in his hand. He walked away after making contact with police several houses away.

Officers looked inside his residence to find him, but only found two pit bull dogs. They contacted the Lucas County dog warden's office.

An officer observed the man in the woods behind the house.

He told police he had several weapons inside his residence. Police found a loaded 12-gauge shotgun, a handgun, and ammunition and $855 in a bag in the man's car, which they searched after he said he might have stored a gun there. No weapon was found.

The firearms charge stemmed from an unrelated incident Saturday in which the suspect is accused of shooting a shotgun and firing at a parked car and a street light in front of his house, according to court records.
