HYANNIS – Barnstable Police took a man into custody and are investigating an allegation that he pulled a knife on a woman in the area of a camp located behind KAM Appliance on Yarmouth Road this afternoon.
As you will see in the following HN Video, police officers confronted the man who was still on scene inside a tent, still in possession of the knife used in the alleged assault.
According to police radio transmissions, the man was highly intoxicated and was taken into protective custody. The man may also be facing charges related to the alleged knife assault.
On a side note, a short time after the male suspect was transported to jail, Hyannis Rescue responded to the KAM Appliance parking lot to evaluate the female victim of the alleged knife assault. She was reportedly experiencing some type of anxiety attack…
WARNING – The following HN Video shows a homeless male suspect who has been living outside in the elements.

Viewer discretion is advised.
