A College Station man was arrested Saturday after authorities said he threatened someone with a butcher knife.

According to College Station police, around 1:20 p.m. Saturday, officers were dispatched to a home in the 1800 block of Potomac Place. Two people had been arguing, and at one point, police said, 37-year-old Christopher Bernard Thompson punched the victim in the face before drawing a butcher knife and issuing threats. No one was stabbed nor cut, police said.

Thompson is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon — family violence, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison and $10,000 in fines. Thompson remained in the Brazos County Jail on Saturday evening, as bail had not yet been set.
