When the suspect approached him at King’s Deli near MLK and Cherry July 16 and offered to sell him two Honda lawnmowers, the man was intrigued. After all, he had two similar lawnmowers stolen from him recently, according to the police report.
He asked the suspect to show him the mowers. Once he confirmed they were his, he confronted the suspect about the mowers being stolen.
The suspect then allegedly pulled out a “razor blade” knife and attempted to open it. The man was able to get the knife out of the suspect’s hands and restrain him until police arrived.
When the officer told him he as being video recorded, the suspect said the officer was being recorded and that he would have Obama fire him.
The man got his mowers back.
