An Iowa City man has been arrested for threatening an apparent neighbor with a knife.

Stephane Elongamujinga was arrested just before midnight on Dec. 30, and charged with Going Armed with Intent.

According to the police report, Iowa City officers initially responded to a call for a fight with a knife.

Authorities believe Elongamujinga knocked on the window of a car, and when the driver got out, grabbed him by the coat and threatened him with a knife. The victim ran away, and called police.

Elongamujinga was found in a nearby apartment, where witnesses said they saw him take something from the kitchen, go outside, and then return something to the kitchen. The resident said she noticed a knife was out of place.
