NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A man told detectives he chased another man down Broadway with a knife late Thursday night because the two were in rival gangs, an arrest warrant alleges.
Sean Williams, 35, was arrested early Friday morning on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
The warrant states someone in the area of Broadway and Third Avenue North called 911 around 11:55 p.m. Thursday to report seeing a man chasing another person with a knife. Police arrived and said they could see Williams, who was armed with a kitchen knife, running after the man.
Officers were able to stop Williams along Broadway. They questioned Williams, who told officers the other man was in a rival gang, so he had to stab him, according to the police report.
Williams was taken into custody and transported to the Metro jail, where he was held on a $25,000 bond.
