Man threatens to stab trucker with pair of scissors

A trucker was threatened and chased by a man wielding a pair of scissors in San Diego over the weekend.

The incident occurred at approximately 9:40 a.m. on Sunday, April 15th in San Diego, California.

According to the San Diego Police Department, officers received a call complaining of a man threatening people with a weapon at a CarMax dealership on the corner of Dagget and Convoy Street. When officers arrived at the car dealership, the suspect was chasing a truck driver who was just trying to make a delivery.

“He [the suspect] chased the truck driver over to his big rig and at one point tried to get into the big rig,” explained Lieutenant Christian Sharp to NBC 7 News.

“He’s chasing someone around with a pair of scissors, threatening to kill him… That’s pretty serious.”

Police then used a bean bag shotgun and a police dog to take the unnamed suspect down. The man was hit once with a bean bag and was bitten by the police dog but is expected to make a full recovery. He was then taken into custody on two felony charges, including making criminal threats. The description of the second charge has not yet been released.

The truck driver later told officers that he had grabbed a metal bar in case he needed to defend himself against the man, but that the metal bar was never used.
