A Perry man was arrested Tuesday after allegedly threatening to kill two of his housemates.
Javier Calderon Navarro, 52, of 1617 Second St., Perry, was charged with two counts of first-degree harassment.
The incident occurred about 5 p.m. Monday in the 1600 block of Second Street, where the two male victims allegedly heard Calderon Navarro “make threats towards them while he was in his room,” according to court records.
Calderon Navarro allegedly “made statements that he was going to kill” the victims and said that “it would be worse than a triple homicide that occurred here in Perry a few years ago,” according to court records.
A victim said he saw Calderon Navarro “exit his room with a knife in each hand, but he returned to his room upon seeing” the victim “in the hallway,” according to court records.
The victim said he was afraid that Calderon Navarro “will attempt to follow through with his statements.”
Calderon Navarro was held in the Dallas County Jail prior to his release on his own recognizance. He is scheduled for arraignment June 17 in Dallas County District Court.
