(KNSI) - A man's accused of pulling a knife on a bartender in Waite Park.

The Waite Park Police Department sent officers to Ultimate Sports Bar & Grill on Division Street around 2 a.m. Friday to investigate the assault complaint.

Police say they were given information that a suspect, later identified as Alexander Lee Gaebel, was not allowing the bartender to lock the door.

When the bartender told the suspect he was calling police, the suspect allegedly entered the bar, pulled out a knife and pointed it at the bartender.

The suspect then left.

Officers found the man hiding near a garage and arrested him.

The 26-year-old from Waite Park was taken to St. Cloud Hospital where he was medically cleared.

He was then transported to the Stearns County Jail where he's facing a charge of 2nd degree assault with a weapon.
