SOUTHINGTON - A Hartford man accused of threatening to shoot a man, which was overheard by a police officer, is wanted for not showing up to court to answer to felony charges.

Elvin Feliciano, 24, is wanted for two counts of failure to appear, according to officials of Bristol Superior Court. Feliciano had a scheduled court appearance Friday that he did not show up for, officials said.

Jeffrey Lee, state prosecutor, asked that Feliciano not receive the courtesy of an “invitation letter” - formally known as a bail commissioners letter -reminding him that he had court, before his re-arrest is ordered. Lee continued by saying Feliciano is free on a “disgusting non-surety bond” - which does not require any money to be posted for release- and that, as a result, has shown “no respect” for the judicial system.

Feliciano is facing charges of risk of injury to a minor, second-degree threatening, carrying a dangerous weapon, disorderly conduct and second-degree criminal mischief.

According to court documents, Feliciano was allegedly involved in a physical altercation with the mother of his child at a Southington motel on Dec. 2. The couple’s 2-year-old child was present during the alleged dispute, court papers said.

Later in the day, a New Britain man called Feliciano over a financial dispute. He made the call while with a police officer at the Southington Police Department. During the call, according to court documents, a police officer overheard Feliciano tell the man to come by his motel room, saying he had “a shell for you.”
