A Watertown man allegedly attempted to murder a relative and put a gun to her head after she told him he would have to leave their house.
The man also reportedly threatened the lives of several other relatives and when police arrested him, they found illegal pepper spray, a knife disguised as a pen and three samurai swords in his room.
Aaron Cutts, 36, of 44 Webster St., was arraigned in Waltham District Court on May 9 for charged of attempted murder and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. He was order held in lieu of $5,000 cash bail by Judge Gregory Flynn for psychiatric evaluation until his probable cause hearing on May 31.
On May 6, the relative and her boyfriend reported to the Watertown Police Department at 3:15 p.m. and said Cutts had tried to strangle her and put a gun to her head on May 5.
The Watertown TAB does not release the names of domestic violence victims.
According to reports, Cutts had asked the relative to join him in a downstairs bedroom of their 44 Webster St. home to discuss their living situation. The relative reportedly sat down on the bed and Cutts asked whether or not her boyfriend would continue to live there.
The relative allegedly told the suspect that her boyfriend would continue to live there and that Cutts would have to leave. Cutts reportedly lunged at the relative, put both of his hands around her neck and began to squeeze.
According to reports, the relative said she was “stunned” and she struggled with the suspect, saying, “Aaron, stop! I can’t breathe,” and tried to call out for her boyfriend, who was asleep upstairs. The relative was reportedly able to squirm onto the floor at which point the suspect released his grip.
While the relative was still on the floor, Cutts reportedly held a hard object to her head and said, “this is a gun.” The relative reportedly saw a silver object in his hand but could not see whether or not it was actually a firearm.
Cutts reportedly pulled the victim to her feet and showed her a knife and said, “I could cut your throat with this.”
According to police reports obtained by the Watertown TAB from Waltham District Court, Cutts told the victim that he would kill her, her boyfriend, her daughter and her husband.
According to reports, the relative said Cutts had been on disability for several years, has been admitted to McLean Hospital several times for depression and other ailments and is on psychiatric medications.

Officers were reportedly able to arrest Cutts without incident and found two expandable batons and a concealed knife in a sheath hidden on his person. Officers reportedly found two cans of 10 percent foam pepper spray, for which he did not have a license, in his room.
According to reports, officers also confiscated three samurai swords; a knife disguised as a pen; a plastic container filled with BBs; C02 cartridges; nails and several fluoxetine pills. A silver Colt automatic .25 caliber pellet gun was reportedly taken as evidence.
Cutts was reportedly brought to the Watertown Police Department where he was booked and evaluated by a psychiatric doctor from Advocates in Waltham, who determined the suspect should be institutionalized because of his extreme paranoia.
Cutts was reportedly transported to Newton-Wellesley hospital after he was served with a restraining order on behalf of the relative.
