A Mitchell man has been charged with threatening another man with a knife and slashing a tire in December.

Charges were filed on May 10 against 33-year-old Jeffrey Gratzfeld for the alleged assault, which took place on Dec. 10 at a North Minnesota Street residence.

One of the alleged victims said, according to an affidavit filed on May 6, that an altercation had begun when Gratzfeld became upset. Gratzfeld allegedly lunged at the victim with a knife, then punctured the rear tire of a 2002 Buick Rendezvous.

Court documents do not indicate that Gratzfeld injured the alleged victim during the incident.

Gratzfeld is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a Class 3 felony, and $400 or less of intentional damage to property, a Class 2 misdemeanor.
