A man allegedly threatened two pedestrians with a 5-inch knife Monday night in separate unprovoked altercations.
Police arrested Louie Stahl, 46, on suspicion of brandishing a knife. The Temple City resident was later cited and released. Arcadia police Lt. Bob Anderson said no one was injured in the incident.
The two victims reportedly crossed paths with Stahl while walking in the 700 block of Naomi Avenue around 11:30 p.m. He wielded a knife at them and used profanity, Anderson said.
A witness reported seening Stahl flee west on Duarte Road. Police eventually detained him in the parking lot of the Pavilions at 745 West Naomi Avenue, Anderson said.
