A Carlton man was arrested recently after he allegedly attacked his uncle, threatening to cut him with a knife.
Cody Lee Seymour, 23, 755 South Railroad Avenue, was charged with aggravated assault. According to the incident report, officer Klint Segars and another officer were sent to the residence regarding a domestic dispute. When they arrived, Seymour was standing in the front yard of his grandparents’ residence, where he lives. He told them he and his uncle got into a fight on the phone when his uncle called and told him to pack up his belongings and leave. Seymour said he refused and his uncle came over to force him to leave. He said he met his uncle on the porch and that his uncle began yelling at him to “get out.”
He said his uncle then grabbed him and threw him to the ground. He said he had a belt in his hand but never struck his uncle. His grandfather separated them. His uncle then followed him inside, grabbing a walking stick. That’s when he said he pulled a knife to defend himself. His uncle said his nephew has been disrespectful to his parents and that he asked him to leave. He said his nephew did swing at him with the belt and pushed him to the ground. When Seymour went inside, he said he followed him and he pulled a knife on him, threatening to cut him and that’s when 9-1-1 was called. Two witnesses at the scene confirmed the uncle’s side of the story and Seymour was arrested.
