NORFOLK, Neb. -- A 29-year-old Norfolk man is facing felony charges after an arrest early Wednesday morning.

Shortly before 1:00 a.m., Norfolk Police responded to a reported disturbance outside an apartment on N. 25th Street. A caller stated that a man was pounding on their door while holding a large knife.

Responding officers located a suspect, 29-year-old Israel Salvador Turquiz of Norfolk, and attempted to speak to him. According to Norfolk Police Capt. Michael Bauer, Turquiz refused to stop and attempted to ride away from the officers on a bicycle.

While attempting to evade the officers he reached into his clothing and discarded the knife on the ground, Bauer claimed.

Officers caught Turquiz, took him into custody, and recovered the knife. He was arrested for terroristic threats, use of a weapon to commit a felony and obstructing a peace officer. He was housed in the Norfolk City Jail and later transferred to the Madison County Jail.
