A man has been arrested after reports that he swung knives and assaulted employees at a downtown Roanoke restaurant Friday afternoon.
Christian Linthicum, 38, is charged with three counts of assault, one count of trespassing and one count of assault and battery. He is being held in the Roanoke City Jail without bond.
Roanoke police were called to Awful Arthur’s restaurant in the 100 block of Campbell Avenue shortly after 3 p.m. on Friday after receiving calls about a man who came into the restaurant with knives, police spokesman Sgt. Jason Holt said.
Witnesses said the man was swinging knives at employees, Holt said. He said that when officers arrived, the man placed the knives on a table.
Holt said the man was not an employee and did not seem to know anyone there. He was yelling while swinging the knives, Holt said.
There were no reported injuries.
