Man Arrested For Assault With Deadly Weapon

Posted: Updated:

A man is behind bars after he chased two people with a knife, following what police believe was a mental break-down.

This all started at the Lincoln arms apartments on C street in Sparks Wednesday afternoon.

Police say a man was visiting a friend when a fight broke out and he started chasing his friend with a knife.

The friend got away and returned back to his apartment. Then the attacker turned his attention to a woman walking her dog and chased her with the knife.

Police arrested, Daniel Gonzalez at the apartments. They say they found him in a breeze-way holding the knife to his head.

After asking him to drop the knife several times, Gonzalez refused.  Police tazed him and took him into custody.

Fortunately both victims were not hurt.

Gonzalez faces charges of assault with a deadly weapon and other related charges.
