UPPD Crime Prevention Officer Lita Snellgrove said the charge for the incident on Jan. 26 has been changed to "Disorderly Conduct Displaying a Knife" because "there was no demand for valuables."

According to Snellgrove, "the suspect walked up to the victim with a knife in his hand as she exited the garage. She screamed, and the suspect left the scene."
