Police: Knox County man held woman at knifepoint

KNOX COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - A Knox County man is accused of holding a woman at knifepoint for several hours.

Brandon Davidson was arrested after a woman alleged he held her against her will for hours and threatened her with a knife.

"She said he had a folding knife and brandished it on her during the time that she was being held," Sheriff Mike Smith with the Knox County Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies arrested Davidson at his home and charged him with unlawful imprisonment and terroristic threatening.

Smith said, "As we rolled up to the trailer and got out at the trailer, he attempted to flee out the back door of the trailer and we apprehended him."

Davidson was charged with possession of marijuana because he was smoking it at the time of his arrest.

Davidson was additionally charged with burglary, fleeing or evading police, resisting arrest and wanton endangerment for a burglary in December.

Outstanding warrants were also active in Davidson's name for failing to appear in court on charges of assault, criminal mischief, arson and theft.
