Man With A Knife

Chillicothe Police took a man into custody after he was allegedly observed using a knife to attack a motorcycle eventually leading to the vehicle catching on fire.

Chillicothe Police had responded to the 700 block of Cowgill Street late Friday morning where officers were advised the 58-year-old male lived next door to the victim. Police surrounded the home and began advising the suspect to exit the residence.

A news release said the suspect allegedly opened the door aggressively and was said to be wielding a large knife. Police noted the man dropped the knife but continued ignoring officers’ commands. A Taser was deployed successfully incapacitating the suspect. The suspect was then taken into custody without further incident.
