DAYTON — What started as a theft of trash bags from McDonald’s ended with a man in jail for allegedly threatening to kill officers and various business workers.
Dayton police were called around 8:45 a.m. Wednesday to the area of Wright-Patt Credit Union at 1 S. Main St. for a disorderly subject.
Officers encountered a “very agitated” Evans M. Henderson, 49, on the corner of Main and Third streets, according to the police report.
Henderson matched the description of a suspect in a theft of trash bags from McDonald's at 410 S. Main St., in which a maintenance worker was threatened after confronting the suspect. The suspect reportedly told the worker, "I will slice your throat," according to the police report.
Henderson then reportedly walked into the Wright-Patt Credit Union and asked for a pen and rubber band. When he was denied — due to not being a member there — the man reportedly threatened to kill a couple workers, reads the police report.
Responding Dayton police officers and jail staff were also threatened with physical threats. Henderson is on parole for previous crimes, according to police.
Henderson was trespassed from the credit union. He’s in Montgomery County Jail on charges of menacing, theft, disorderly conduct and parole violation.
