Cheyenne Man Accused of Swinging Knife at Dasher
A 32-year-old Cheyenne man is facing a felony charge after allegedly swinging a knife at a Dasher and threatening to kill him.
Police say they were called to Golden House Chinese Restaurant at 1615 Carey Ave. around 4:40 p.m. on July 1 in reference to a suspicious person with a knife.
Police say the reporting party, Chris Munoz, told them that he and his family were doing DoorDash and were northbound on Carey Avenue when one of his children recognized Joshua Wallace from a prior interaction in which Wallace had spit on Munoz's vehicle.
Munoz reportedly told police that Wallace was riding a bike, and when Wallace saw Munoz's vehicle he made a U-turn and rode back toward Munoz's vehicle unsheathing a knife.
Munoz said his windows were down and he could see Wallace holding a knife, which he described as curved with a possible serration on it, between six and eight inches in length.
Munoz's children, who were in the backseat, also reportedly yelled knife.
Munoz said he opened his door to stop Wallace's advance, and that Wallace was laughing saying, "I'll kill you," and swinging the knife in his direction.
Munoz then reportedly left and headed southeast with the intention of parking at the Arby's at 310 E. Lincolnway and calling the police, but when he arrived in the area, he saw Wallace following him with a bottle in his hand.
Police say a Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper in the area located Wallace and detained him after seeing him throw the bottle into the street.
Wallace was served a summons for littering. He also had an unserved city summons for violent tumultuous acts which was served at the jail.
Wallace was subsequently charged with aggravated assault, a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
His bond was set at $4,000 cash and his preliminary hearing was scheduled for July 13 at 2 p.m.
On July 3, Wallace was served at the jail with a misdemeanor warrant for probation violation on an original charge of two counts of unlawful contact - touch.
