Police responded to the 100 block of North Henry Street just after midnight Friday after a report of a man with a knife. Police had responded to the house for an earlier argument but left when everyone calmed down. When officers returned, they found Thomas White, 66, trying to force his way through a door and holding a knife. Police said White was convinced to drop the knife. According to police, a man on the other side of the doorway told police he had barricaded himself behind it after White came at him with a knife. The man was uninjured, and White was arrested for felony assault with a weapon.
A man brought into the St. James Healthcare ER was arrested at 3:45 a.m. Friday for assault with a bodily fluid and disorderly conduct. According to police, Charles Johnson, 63, told hospital staff he had to go to the bathroom. When staff provided Johnson with a portable urinal, he allegedly filled it and threw it at a nurse.
