Man arrested for reportedly threatening to kill neighbor in Walla Walla

A man was arrested after police said he threatened to kill another person in Walla Walla.

Officers with the Walla Walla Police Department were called out to the 300 block of Catherine Street Tuesday night after reports of an assault with a weapon.

Police said Robert Edwards, 70, was threatening another tenant at the apartment complex with a knife around 10:15 p.m.

After several hours of failed negotiations, a SWAT team was called in.

Roberts was eventually arrested and booked into the Walla Walla County Jail on charges of threatening to kill and obstructing a law enforcement officer.

No one was injured.
