A local man was arrested after he allegedly threatened another man with hedge trimmers in central Salina Tuesday evening.

At approximately 6 p.m. Tuesday, officers were sent to the 300 block of W. Crawford Street for a belated report of trespassing. When they arrived, they found Cole Marlow, 37, of Salina, wielding a pair of black and yellow hedge trimmers in the parking lot at 302 W. Crawford, Salina Police Captain Paul Forrester reported this morning. Marlow was walking toward the 600 block of S. Ninth Street and yelling at a 22-year-old Salina man. Marlow allegedly was wildly swinging the hedge trimmers and advancing toward the other man.

The 22-year-old man told police that he had been on his porch and had a verbal exchange with Marlow, who was holding the hedge trimmers. Marlow allegedly began aggressively swinging the hedge trimmers and moving toward the other man, who was concerned that Marlow would attack him or his family, Forrester said. It was at that point that officers arrived.

Additionally, it was found that Marlow allegedly trespassed in a yard in the 500 block of S. 10th Street, Forrester said.

Marlow was arrested on the following requested charges, according to Forrester.

●Aggravated assault

●Criminal trespassing

●Pedestrian under the influence in the roadway
