City police Tuesday arrested Pe San Maung, 40, of 610 Burchard St., after he was accused of threatening a man with a knife and and using racial slurs.
According to police, Mr. Maung took a kitchen knife and waved it at Victor L. Ingram, of 127 Spring Ave., Apt. A3, called him a racial slur and threatened his life, saying come on, I will send you to hell.
Because Mr. Muang was previously convicted of endangering the welfare of a child in April 2012, his criminal possession of a weapon charge is a felony.
He was arrested at 830 Washington St. at 11:15 a.m. and charged with second-degree menacing and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon. For these charges, he was held at the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building on $100 cash bail pending arraignment in City Court.
Mr. Muang was on probation at the time and was arraigned for violation of his probation by the county sheriffs department. He was held for that alleged offense.
