Johnson City man charged with aggravated burglary


A Johnson City man is facing charges following an overnight incident at an apartment on Cherry Street.

According to authorities, officers responded around 1:45 a.m. Friday.

The victim added he advanced toward him in a threatening manner causing him to back up in his kitchen. The victim then grabbed a knife for self-defense and told his roommate to call 911. The suspect left the apartment before officers arrived, but was arrested nearby.
