Aberdeen man arrested after threatening man with a knife

March 19, 2014

Aberdeen Police arrested a man for assault after he swung a knife at a witness to a car accident.

Officers were called to First and B Streets following the accident. They were told that one of the people involved was now chasing a witness to the accident with a knife.

Witnesses said that a 36 year old Aberdeen man was driving a 2001 Toyota PU and had ran the stop sign on East First and collided with a 2004 Pontiac Van on B Street. No injuries were reported.

Officers were told that a witness to the collision took a photo of the license plate of the truck, concerned the suspect may flee the scene. Allegedly, the suspect exited his pickup with what was described as a “Rambo” type knife and came toward the witness, making verbal threats and “slashing” the knife toward them.

The suspect allegedly returned to his truck as the officers arrived on scene.

The 36 year old was arrested without incident for Assault in the 2nd Degree.
