CARMI – A Carmi man will face multiple charges following an incident in Carmi Monday night.

According to Carmi Police Chief Jason Carter, 51-year-old Timothy L. Roberts was arrested at an apartment at 203 ½ B 6th Street for aggravated assault and unlawful use of weapons following a call for service to the area. Roberts was also arrested on a White County warrant for failure to appear.

Carter said officers responded to the location after a report regarding a man attempting to stab subjects with a knife.

After officers arrived at the scene, they were informed the knife had been apprehended from Roberts by one of the male victims. However, a female victim was still inside the apartment with Roberts and they believed he may have obtained another knife. Contact was made and the female victim was removed to safety without incident and Roberts was detained.

The chief added information was obtained and a complaint was signed. No injuries were reported. As a result, Roberts was taken to the White County Jail.
