A North Platte man was charged with terroristic threats early Friday morning in a dispute over a woman.
A man was reportedly creating a disturbance with a knife around 12:50 a.m. Friday, and police went to a house in the 1100 block of East Fifth to check it out, spokesman Rodney Brown said.
Brown said a 24-year-old man said he went to the house to speak with Wade Krahulik, 46, trying to resolve a personal issue between the men over Krahulik’s girlfriend. The alleged victim said Krahulik stormed out of the house, threatened him with a 12” buck knife, then stabbed the knife into his own pickup parked nearby.
Then the man went back inside and argued with his girlfriend.
The alleged victim said Krahulik came outside again and threatened to shoot him, although he did not display a gun.
Police found the knife and after more investigation, officers determined there was probable cause to arrest Krahulik for felony terroristic threats and use of a weapon to commit a felony. He was charged and taken to the Lincoln County jail, where he is held on a $50,000 bond.
