A 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of chasing a man and a woman with a butcher knife early Sunday, Oct. 28, at a house south of Ferndale.
Todd Joseph Johnson got into a drunken argument with the two victims during a get-together at the home in the 5000 block of LaBounty Drive, said Ferndale Police Lt. Matt Huffman. Police didn’t note what the argument was about.
About 2:30 a.m., Johnson picked up a butcher knife in the kitchen and briefly chased the man, 27, and the woman, 23, Huffman said. By the time the cops showed up, the knife had been tossed into some bushes. It was recovered and impounded as evidence.
Police arrested Johnson on suspicion of two counts of assault in the second degree. Everyone at the home knew each other.
