Aggravated assault, threats lead to arrest
Friday morning, Orange police were dispatched to the 200 block of Knox in reference to a disturbance. Upon arrival, Officer Caleb Davis observed a black male standing in the yard of the residence screaming. The man was verbally identified as Jimmy Wilson, whose left hand was covered in blood.
Officer Davis spoke with the owner of the residence, Eleanor Mcleod. Mcleod stated that Wilson came into her home and began yelling and cursing. In fear of their safety, Mcleod’s daughter “grabbed a butcher knife.”
Wilson then grabbed Mcleod’s juvenile daughter by her wrist, causing her pain, and attempted to throw her into the kitchen counter.
The daughter pulled away in an attempt to escape Wilson’s grip. When the daughter pulled away, the knife cut Wilson on his left hand between the middle and ring fingers.
According to Mcleod, Wilson left the residence at that time stating he was going to get a gun and harm them.
Wilson then got a small tire iron from his vehicle, which was parked in the driveway. While he had the tire iron, he was yelling threats of harm toward the juvenile, and attempted to enter the home again in order to harm the girl.
Mcleod and her daughter felt that Wilson would carryout the threats made, and were in immediate fear for their safety.
While police were speaking to Mcleod, Wilson began running south towards Morrell. Police were able to stop Wilson and place him in custody. He was transported to Orange County Jail.
Eleanor Mcleod stated that she wished to file charges .
