Officers were called to the intersection of View and Broad streets just before 8:30 p.m. last night for a report of a man brandishing a knife at two others. Officers discovered the victims and witnesses who pointed out a suspect leaving the area. Officers took a suspect into custody. The victims were not physically injured.
