Park City police investigate after man confronted with a knife in Old Town
The Park City Police Department continues to investigate a report of someone confronting another person with a knife in Old Town in early June.
Phil Kirk, a police captain, said the department received the report at 11:57 a.m. on June 7 on the 1300 block of Norfolk Avenue. Kirk said the person who contacted the Police Department said he watched a man exit a Chevrolet Tahoe, walk behind a dumpster and defecate. The caller confronted the man, requesting he clean up the feces, Kirk said. The man went to the vehicle and retrieved a knife, Kirk said.
The person who called the police told the man he would contact the authorities. The man drove off in the Tahoe northbound on Park Avenue.
Kirk said the suspect appeared to be 60 years old. He weighed approximately 300 pounds and had a white beard, Kirk said. The captain called the case an “unusual occurrence.”
“We’re glad it didn’t escalate into anything worse,” Kirk said.
Anyone with information may contact the Police Department at 615-5500.
