(KNSI) - A South Haven man is behind bars after allegedly threatening to beat up a child and pointing a gun at him.
According to the criminal complaint filed in Stearns County Court, 37-year old Bryan Penney was antagonizing the child and telling him he was going to "beat him up." A woman inside the house put herself between Penney and the boy and told police Penney shoved her out of the way.
The child said he grabbed a knife because he was afraid.
Penney admitted to pointing a gun at the boy and saying he was going to shoot him.
A gun was found in the home.
Penney is charged with three counts of domestic assault, one count of 2nd-degree assault, and one count of making terroristic threats.
He is due back in court on March 9th.
