Police: Man threatens neighbors with knife over loud music

He became so annoyed with the loud music being played by his west Wichita neighbors early Tuesday morning that he went over and threatened to cut them up with a knife if they didn’t turn it down, police said.

They slammed their door in the 6900 block of West Shade, near Central and Tyler, at about 2:15 a.m. Tuesday and locked it, Lt. Doug Nolte said. But the irate neighbor returned with a knife and kicked the door in.

They called 911, prompting the 30-year-old man to leave, Nolte said. Officers found the discarded knife a short distance away and arrested the man.

He was booked into the Sedgwick County Jail on suspicion of six counts of aggravated assault. The six people in the apartment included a 10-year-old girl, a 13-year-old boy, two 15-year-old girls, a 16-year-old boy and a 32-year-old woman, Nolte said.
