A Jonesborough man was arraigned Tuesday in Sessions Court after police said he threatened workers at a Johnson City pawn shop with a knife.
Clarence Duncan, 36, is charged with one count of aggravated assault following the Monday incident at Volunteer Pawn at 1914 South Roan Street, according to a report from the Johnson City Police Department.
Investigators said Duncan came to the shop just before 4 p.m. that day and "became irate" at the staff then pulled the weapon. Police and pawn shop personnel were able to identify Duncan as the suspect after reviewing prior pawn tickets. He had reportedly fled the scene prior to officers arriving, the report said.
Duncan was arrested at his home and he was placed in jail. He was also given a $25,000 bond, police said.
