Man charged with threatening woman with kitchen knife

Ruston Police arrested a 52-year-old man Saturday after responding to a domestic disturbance at a Kenwood Drive residence.

The victim told officers she was in the living room of the residence when Terrence Jackson grabbed a knife from the kitchen and threatened her with it. She said Jackson walked in her direction while holding the knife and she locked herself in the bedroom to get away from him.

A witness said Jackson was drunk and angry over the removal of the television from his bedroom. The witness said she attempted to remove Jackson from the residence and when she could not, she called police.

Officers found Jackson in the kitchen of the residence struggling to maintain his balance and showing other indications of intoxication. A kitchen knife was found on the floor in Jackson’s room. He was arrested and booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center for aggravated assault.
