Officers were sent to the Carniceria Los Cuates grocery store on Broad Street Tuesday morning for a report of an assault with a weapon.

The victim reported he had the suspect at gunpoint. When the officers got there they recognized the suspect as Jeffrey Sweatt and took him into custody.

The victim told police he arrived at work and found Sweatt standing in the alley near the building. He told Sweatt he needed to leave and Sweatt attempted to assault him.

The victim said Sweatt tried to punch him so he punched Sweat a couple of times in self defense. He said Sweatt pulled a knife from his pocket so he drew his gun from his holster and held Sweatt at gunpoint until police arrived.
