PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Police in Pierre say they've arrested a Rapid City man for threatening two people with a machete.
Officers were called to a Pierre motel just after 9:30 p.m.
Pierre Police Captain Elton Blemaster says the 29-year-old man was holding a machete with an 18-inch blade when he threatened to cut off the heads of a 38-year-old man and a 45-year-old woman, both from Pierre.
Police say the suspect ran off but was found a few blocks away with the machete concealed in his pants. He was booked in the Hughes County Jail on two charges of aggravated assault.
