WACO (April 28, 2014) A Waco man was held Monday in the McLennan County Jail charged in connection with an incident outside of a local convenience store in which two women were threatened with a knife.
Steven Charles Britt, 60, was ordered held on bonds totaling $21,000, charged with aggravated assault, criminal trespass and public intoxication, online jail records showed.
The charges stem from an incident Saturday outside the convenience store in the 700 block of North Valley Mills Drive where a man was asking passersby for money, police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.
When the two women declined to give him money, the man reached out and grabbed one of them by the arm, and after they refused again, he pulled a knife and threatened to cut their throats, Swanton said.
The women were able to get free of the man and went inside the store, where they called police.
The man still was sitting outside the store when officers arrived, Swanton said.
No one was injured.
