LAS VEGAS -- Metro Police are looking for people who might have been confronted by a man arrested Saturday at the Container Park downtown.
Just before 12:30 p.m. Saturday, officers were called to the park on a report that a man was threatening security guards. When they arrived, they found a man sitting on a railing outside the park with a knife to his throat.
Police identified him as 47-year-old Cristian Navarro. Police eventually talked Navarro into putting down the knife, but when an officer tired to give him a bottle of water, he grabbed the knife again.
Another officer shot a beanbag round from a low-lethality shotgun at Navarro, while another officer took the knife away. Navarro was taken to University Medical Center, where he was booked in absentia for one count of assault with a deadly weapon and one count of resisting arrest with a deadly weapon.
