A man who had been previously barred from a downtown hotel returned Monday evening to threaten the desk clerk with a knife.
Police were called after the incident at about 8 p.m. on Monday. The hotel clerk hadn’t been hurt, but had been threatened with the knife, and verbal threats had been made as well.
Officers managed to find and arrest the suspect nearby. Police say they found a folding knife on him. It appears that the suspect believes that the hotel clerk had previously reported him to police.
A 47-year-old Brandon man was to appear in court Tuesday morning, on charges of assault with a weapon, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, uttering threats and trespassing on private property.
