Aberdeen man accused of pulling knife after crash nets assault charge

April 9, 2014 

An Aberdeen man accused of threatening a witness with a knife has been charged in Grays Harbor Superior Court.

Glenn D. Black III, 36, pleaded not guilty to second-degree assault Monday.

According to court documents, Black struck a car near First and B streets in Aberdeen on March 17. He allegedly got out of the car and checked if anyone had called the police before returning to his vehicle and starting the engine.

A witness, who had nearly been struck by Black, according to the documents, went to take a photo of Black’s license plate because he was concerned Black would leave the scene.

Black allegedly grabbed a long, “Rambo-style” knife and chased the man about 15 feet, shouting that he would kill the man.

Black was being held in Grays Harbor County Jail, with bail set at $250,000.
