Man accused of menacing

Daniel Ryan Alcantara, 19, was arrested on suspicion of felony menacing after allegedly holding up a knife and yelling about killing people while in an altercation with his parents on Wednesday.

Officers with the Fruita Police Department responded to a home in the 500 block of Lois Drive on a report that Alcantara was acting violently, damaging things in the home.

According to an arrest affidavit, Alcantara was upset that his marijuana set-up had been knocked over and he blamed his mother, deleting her computer files. When contacted by police, Alcantara ran from police and later was arrested without incident. Alcantara then became violent when he learned he was facing charges and it took three police officers to restrain him, the affidavit said.
