Two women were grilling food outside their apartment in Parkview Homes when a man yelled that smoke was coming from the grill into his yard. He went inside his apartment and returned with a huge kitchen knife.
According to a story in the Athens Banner Herald, that’s what happened Tuesday evening. And that’s why Charles Cecil Craft, Sr., was arrested and charged with aggravated assault.
Athens Clarke County Police officers went to Parkview Homes around 8pm on Tuesday, the story says, after the women called to report the alleged knife incident. Children playing in the area corroborated the story and Craft was arrested.
The story says that Tuesday’s arrest is the third time since 2004 Craft has been arrested for aggravated assault.
