WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A 55-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of threatening visitors at Riverside Park in Wichita.

The suspect faces charges including aggravated assault, one count of simple battery and one count of criminal possession of a weapon.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/1CnlCHI ) reports a 29-year-old woman told police she was approached by a man who threatened to physically harm her. According to Wichita Police Department spokesman Sgt. Brian Sigman, the suspect then went to a group of visitors and threatened them.

Sigman said the suspect pulled out a box knife and threatened to cut a 24-year-old man and a 22-year-old man. The suspect pushed the 24-year-old with one hand and brandished the knife with his other hand.
