A York City man accused of leading police on a chase in a stolen vehicle last month is now charged with threatening to shoot his girlfriend, according to police.

Andrew Bernard Frazier, 19, of 210 Test Road, is charged with terroristic threats and a misdemeanor drug charge, according to charging documents.

Police say on Aug. 10 Frazier threatened to shoot and kill his girlfriend and people in her house. The call initially came in from his girlfriend's mother, who called police about noon that day, police said. She alleged Frazier was in her home in the 300 block of Simpson Street and that he was threatening to shoot and kill them, documents state.

The girlfriend told police that before her mother had called authorities, she went and met with a friend. Frazier's girlfriend and her friend returned to the house when Frazier confronted the two of them, police allege. She told police Frazier chased her friend up the street at gunpoint, adding that she had seen Frazier holding a silver revolver that he keeps on him, documents state.

He then returned, she said, adding that is when he made the threats, according to police. Her mother fled the house and met with police at Albemarle and Commerce streets.

Her mother told police she feared for her and her daughter's life.

When police came to the home, Frazier jumped from the third-floor window onto the second-floor roof and ran along a shared roof to other residences before police took him into custody, according to charging documents.

Frazier's girlfriend's mother also told officers she had seen Frazier rolling marijuana into a joint in her daughter's room, documents state. Upon searching the room, they found a joint as well as a clear plastic bag containing suspected crack, police said.

Police: Man arrested in high-speed chase had stolen gun, car

Prior charges: On July 25, Northern York County Regional Police say they saw Frazier with two other men in a Kia in the parking lot of CVS at the corner of North George Street and Route 30 at about 2:50 p.m

The officers ran the Kia's license plate and learned it was reported stolen from York City, court documents state.

They followed the Kia, hit their lights and siren and tried to pull over the Kia while it was westbound on Route 30, documents state.

Just before the Parkway Boulevard intersection, the Kia crashed into the rear of a Nissan and caused it to rear-end a Jeep Grand Cherokee, police said. No one was hurt, Lt. David Lash said at the time.

Three males jumped out of the car and took off, which is when officers ran down and captured Frazier, according to documents. While searching Frazier, officers found a stolen gun and a small amount of crack, police allege.

The other two occupants successfully eluded officers, but one of them — a man who wore a red shirt and red pants — was caught on surveillance video. Police are asking for help in identifying him because they said Frazier has declined to speak about either man in the car with him.

When asked by officers where he obtained the stolen Beretta 9mm handgun, Frazier allegedly said he got it from a "junkie," documents state. The gun held eight rounds, one of which was chambered, according to police.

"Andrew (Frazier) informed me that he carries the pistol because it is crazy out here on the streets," the officer wrote in the charging documents.

Frazier was initially free on $20,000 bail for his prior charges, and he posted bail of $50,000 again for the most current charges, online court records state. However, on Aug. 11, Magisterial District Judge Jeffrey Oberdorf revoked Frazier's bail in light of his new charges, according to online court records. Frazier remains in York County Prison.
