    Boise Police responded to a report of an aggravated assault in the area of 16th and Front Street early this morning, October 11th, at approximately 12:15 a.m. The victim tells police he was in Rhodes park when he became involved in a personal dispute with the suspect. The suspect and the victim are well known to each other. At one point, the victim tells police the suspect produced a knife and threatened him with it. Officers located the suspect, who appeared to be very intoxicated at the time, still in the park. A check through Boise City Records indicated the suspect had a warrant for his arrest on probation violation charges. Officers recovered a knife from the suspect's person. After a detailed investigation into the incident, the suspect was transported to the Ada County Jail and booked on the above listed charges. No one was injured during this incident.

   Warrant Charges: Grand Theft (F)

     The suspect was taken into custody on an outstanding felony warrant for Grand Theft yesterday.

    The arrest warrant stems from an ongoing investigation into the use of a financial transaction card to make several purchases and withdrawals on an account with negative balances. Evidence indicates the suspect made more than $1,000.00 dollars in purchases and withdrawals starting in May of this year.  That investigative information was forwarded to the Ada County Prosecuting Attorney's Office and resulted in the felony warrant.
