Police: Armed man threatens officers, woman in Mitchell

MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) — Police say they’ve arrested a man armed with a knife who threatened officers and a woman in Mitchell.

Authorities say the 40-year-old man entered the Department of Public Safety building Monday afternoon and threatened three police officers in the lobby and a woman who tried to calm him.

The Argus Leader says officers drew their guns, used a stun gun on the man and he was taken into custody and placed on a mental health hold in the Davison County Jail.
