A man accused of flashing a kitchen knife and threatening to chop off his neighbor’s penis was arrested in a late night Fort Pierce flap.
The case of the apparent planned penis pruning played out around 9:30 p.m. May 28 in the 2300 block of South 29th Street, according to a recently released police report. Lavontae Jamar Roberts, 19, was arrested in connection with the incident.
The 28-year-old victim told Fort Pierce police a loud banging on his apartment wall continued for hours and repeatedly woke his 3-month-old daughter. The 28-year-old victim decided to nicely ask the neighbor to stop with the banging.
The 28-year-old victim got no response after knocking on the neighbor’s door. He knocked some more before the neighbor made a comment.
“Stop knocking on my door you (female genitalia) (buttocks) cracker!” the neighbor is quoted as saying.
The victim yelled to please stop banging, noting it’s waking the 3-month-old baby.
The neighbor came out and flashed a kitchen knife, saying he planned to lop off the victim’s penis and “kill him and everyone in his house.”
It could be argued the average male would oppose having his penis chopped off.
Meanwhile, the victim said he called police.
“The neighbor then told him that if he called the police and they showed up he was going to kill him and he promised to God that if he got arrested and went to jail he was going to get him back by coming for him and his cracker (buttocks) family,” a report states.
The victim’s brother-in-law also told police the neighbor had a knife; made the penis cleaving threat; said he’d “kill all of them” and referred to them as “crackers.”
Roberts, of the 2300 block of South 29th Street in Fort Pierce, was arrested on charges including assault with intent to commit a felony and resist officer obstruct without violence.
