IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

An Iowa City man faces charges after a reported knife threat Tuesday night.

Police were called to the 1900 block of Broadway Street to a report of a fight with a knife.

The alleged victim told police he went to his car in a parking lot to get something, and 23-year-old Stephane Elongamujinga threatened him with a knife.  The victim says he pushed Elongamujinga away, then ran back to his apartment to call for help.

Police say they found Elongamujinga in a neighboring apartment.  People inside say he had grabbed something from the kitchen, went outside for awhile, then returned something to the kitchen.  A person in the apartment says one of her knives was out of place.

The knife matched the description given by the victim.

Elongamujinga is charged with going armed with intent.
