‘It’s going to take more than three of you to take me down. I’ll take your gun and kill all of you,’ the accused allegedly told police.
Jarrod Matthew Fenner, 27, of 554 Carlton Ave. punched a police officer in the left leg and kneed him in the right leg after officers took him to the floor in the Pantry One market at 25 E. Morton St. early Thursday morning.
“It’s going to take more than three of you to take me down. I’ll take your gun and kill all of you,” Fenner told police during the struggle, according to the arrest affidavit.
Police responded to the store at a little after 5 a.m. on a report of a disturbance. A store employee told police that she saw Fenner put two containers of Chobani yogurt and a pack of Trident gum down the front of his pants, the affidavit said. The three stolen items were valued at $7.27, police said.
When the employee confronted Fenner, he started yelling that he would shoot the cops if they came to the store, the affidavit said. Fenner was charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, resisting arrest, terroristic threats, disorderly conduct, retail theft and harassment.
He was arraigned before on-duty District Judge David Tidd of Lower Saucon Township and committed to county prison in lieu of $30,000 bail.
