Ax Armed Man Arrested In Atchison

(KAIR)--A man angrily walks through a trailer court brandishing an ax; and, when he enters a residence while carrying the would be weapon, police are called, and he goes to jail.

That's what Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson says happened Saturday evening, leading to the arrest of 45-year-old Christopher Harvey. “It was shortly after 6:00 Saturday evening when our officers responded to the 1900 block of Harper Drive, where a man with an ax had approached several residences, including entering one home,” Wilson tells MSC New. “The officers did locate, disarm, and take into custody, Harvey.”

Wilson says it remains unclear why Harvey was armed with the ax, and why he picked the residence he allegedly entered. “None of the victims in this case knew Christopher Harvey. He apparently had been walking around the area, it's a mobile home park, with an ax, in somewhat of an angry manner. He approached the outside of one residence where a 40-year-old man came outside, said something to him and Harvey responded to him with a threat, as he had this ax in his hand. Harvey then left that residence and went to a nearby residence where he actually entered the residence. In that residence, there were three females inside. He didn't say anything when he went into the residence, but he had this ax in his hand, so they fled the residence. He then went outside.”

Wilson says police found Harvey outside when they arrived, and it's alleged he was uncooperative as they attempted to take him into custody. “There was confrontation with him as he had this ax in his hand. They were able to disarm him, but now he faces a number of charges related to this incident.”

Harvey was arrested on charges of aggravated assault, aggravated burglary, obstructing legal process, and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Following his arrest, Harvey was booked into the Atchison County Jail.
