Sioux Falls Man Accused of Threatening Officer
A man who was asked to leave a grocery store in Sioux Falls early Tuesday wound up being charged with two felonies after he was brought to jail.
Information Officer Sam Clemens says it was just after midnight when 48-year-old Robert Wayne Running Shield Senior of Sioux Falls was asked to leave the Hy-Vee Food Store on South Minnesota Avenue.
Clemens says the man refused to leave, but when he saw a police car he decided he would vacate.
The officer stopped him and arrested him for failure to vacate, but when he was brought to jail, Clemens says Running Shield talked about “stabbing the officer once he found his knife.”
Clemens says when jail staff found the knife in Running Shield’s pocket, he was also charged with threatening a law enforcement officer and having an unauthorized article in jail.
Clemens says the latter two charges are both felonies.
