Elderly woman threatened

Posted

About 6 p.m. Aug. 12, an 83-year-old Englewood resident called police because she said her son had threatened her and then himself.

Officers went to the woman's address on the 4700 block of South Clay Court, where the woman told them her 58-year-old son had threatened her with a tire iron. She said he then grabbed a knife and threatened to kill himself. Police found the suspect in the backyard of the home and he was arrested without incident.

He was later taken to the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Detention Facility and, when he goes to court, he will find he faces a number of charges including felony menacing.
