A 56-year-old Garden City man is accused of pulling a knife on another man, who was holding his two-year-old child.

Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Deputies say Gregory Mellen was angry that a child in the home touched the DVR, and the argument escalated even after the child’s father said he’d watch the three-year-old closer in the future.

The criminal complaint shows Mellen approached the victim, who admitted to threatening to throw him down the steps if he kept coming toward him.

That’s when investigators say Mellen pulled out a 12-inch knife, pointed it at the victim’s face, and threatened to “stick” him.

In an interview with police, Mellen admitted to threatening the other man with the knife.
