Homeless Man Arrested After Threatening Juvenile With Knife
Officers responded to the 700 block of East Broadway Boulevard Monday afternoon for a report of a male suspect who had threatened a juvenile female with a knife.
According to the probable cause statement, the subject was reported to be sleeping in the bushes next to the Katy Trail.
Officers made contact with the subject, who had two knives on his person. It was later learned the threat had occurred two weeks ago, when the juvenile approached the subject as she was walking home from school, as she thought he might be dead.
He then told her to leave him alone and pulled out the pocket knife. Michael S. Brewington, 46, Homeless, was arrested on a felony charge of Assault in the 3rd Degree, and Unlawful Use of a Weapon.
Brewington was transported to the Pettis County Jail to be placed on a 24-hour hold, and later given a $2500 cash or surety bond.
