WARSAW — A Warsaw man was recently arrested after threatening a man with a knife.
Jeremy Flores, 39, 1692 E. CR 200N Lot 36, Warsaw, is charged with intimidation with a deadly weapon and battery while armed with a deadly weapon, both level 5 felonies; criminal recklessness, a level 6 felony; and battery, a class A misdemeanor.
On Oct. 15, 2020, a Kosciusko County Sheriff’s officer went to a location regarding a stolen wallet. Upon arrival, the officer met with a woman and Flores.
According to court documents, the woman claimed that a man, who had given her a ride in a vehicle, had stolen her wallet. The man told officers he didn’t know where the wallet was and said Flores went to his residence and accused him of stealing the wallet.
The man also said Flores had a knife and allegedly pointed it at him when confronting him about the wallet. Flores then grabbed the man’s shirt and hit him in the face while still holding the knife.
Flores denied hitting the man; however, he did have a folding knife on his person. The man consented to his vehicle being searched. During the search, officers found the woman’s wallet on the vehicle’s passenger side tucked between the seat and car door. The woman said nothing was missing from her wallet.
Flores was booked in the Kosciusko County Jail on Feb. 25, with a $10,250 surety and cash bond.
