San Luis Obispo police reported that several witnesses said Kevin Trevino, a 22-year-old transient, threatened to kill a San Luis Obispo man and a 13-year-old girl after pulling out a pocket knife on June 27.
The threatened man, Wily Menendez, was reportedly able to chase Trevino away with a broomstick. No one was injured.
According to police, Trevino was located several minutes after the attack in the 1700 block of Nipomo Street. He was identified by both victims; arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, felony child endangerment, and brandishing a deadly weapon; and booked at County Jail, where the State Parole Office placed a hold on him.
Michele Goula, media spokesperson for the District Attorneyâ€™s office, said that Trevino was arrested in 2002 on suspicion of forgery and counterfeiting, and has since violated probation so often, he was sent to state prison for 16 months.
