Police arrested a Macclenny man the afternoon of September 24 for threatening two others while brandishing a knife in front of a north city convenience store.
Christopher Webb, 43, allegedly made the threats against Casey Keene, 32, of Macclenny and Darell Hurst, 49, of Sanderson about 4 o’clock as the latter exited the store to a vehicle where Ms. Keene waited.
Deputy Robert Simpkins said Ms. Keene had earlier complained about telephoned threats from Mr. Webb, who the couple said left the scene on a bicycle heading west on Ivy St.
The officer saw the suspect standing near a vehicle on Ivy minutes later, and found a knife matching the description of the one given earlier on a seat in the vehicle.
Mr. Webb denied making the threats or having the knife, and the vehicle’s owner confirmed that the suspect threw it onto the seat when he saw the police cruiser approaching.
Mr. Webb was jailed for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and reportedly telephoned Ms. Keene once again with threats after he was taken to county jail.
A complaint was filed for aggravated battery against Sarah Parish, 26, of Macclenny for an alleged attack on Marie Cooper, 26, of Macclenny late on September 23.The more serious charge is due to the fact that Ms. Cooper is seven months pregnant, and the assailant allegedly kicked her in the stomach during a fight outside the victim’s residence on CR 122 north of Sanderson.
Ms. Cooper told Deputy Johnny Hodges she and Ms. Parish, who along with her husband had been living at her residence, argued when she accused Ms. Parish of taking her property as she moved out.
Two other witnesses affirmed Ms. Cooper’s version of events but Ms. Parish, when interviewed by the deputy later, denied being at the residence that night. Instead, she insists she moved out two days earlier.
• A complaint for assault was filed September 25 against Terry Mash, 55, of Macclenny for alleged threats against Trevor Bedell, 22, late that evening.
Mr. Bedell and his girlfriend Christina Mash, 26, the daughter of the accused, said Mr. Mash entered their bedroom and threatened the boyfriend, and again threatened him when the daughter telephoned him after the incident about 10:30.
Both the father and daughter reside on Lauramore Rd.
