Man arrested after smashing cars with ax

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Police in Sioux Falls have arrested a man after he allegedly smashed out the windows of two cars with an ax and threatened a teenager. The Sioux Falls Argus Leader reports that police got a call late Wednesday afternoon about a man outside an apartment complex with an ax. Police said the 34-year-old man used the three-foot ax to smash the window of a 1994 Ford Mustang and a 2018 Honda Civic. He also threatened a 15-year-old boy who saw the incident with the ax. Officers found the man and arrested him a short time after they arrived. Police said he knew somebody at the apartment complex but that person didn’t own the cars the man vandalized.
