Police officers from the Roseville Police Department reportedly arrested a man earlier this week for allegedly attacking a relative with a meat cleaver, according to an official weekly crime report issued by Roseville PD.
Timothy McKown, 33, of Roseville, was reportedly arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, criminal threats, and carrying a concealed knife.
According to Roseville PD, on Monday, September 15 at 8:39 am, officers received a call and responded to a disturbance at an apartment complex in the 1000 block of Woodcreek Oaks Boulevard, the Heritage Oaks Apartments. Upon arrival, officers learned a male suspect — later identified as McKown — had reportedly struck a male relative on the arm with a meat cleaver and then ran away.
Officers reportedly found the suspect at the intersection of Main Street and Foothills Boulevard and arrested him. The victim had sustained minor injuries to his arm. McKown, who is now listed as a transient, was once a resident of the apartments, and in January of 2012 he was arrested for inflicting corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant (domestic violence). It was not specified if this incident was related to that earlier arrest.
