Aggravated Assault
309 East 400 South

Ricky Havens, 56, went into the business at the above address and asked the clerk if he could use the store’s restroom. Not receiving an immediate response, Havens became upset and threatened to defecate in the clerks’ vehicle and ran outside. The clerk and his cousin exited the store after Havens, who then produced a knife and made contact with the clerk’s cousin’s torso.  Havens then fled the area, discarding the knife along his route. Officers located Havens and took him into custody. Havens was transported to jail for aggravated assault and several lesser charges.
