A Columbus woman was threatened with a knife Friday while in line at a restaurant drive-thru.
Around 12:45 p.m., police were called to the Arby’s restaurant at 3754 Victory Drive. About 10 minutes before, a 54-year-old woman was in line at the drive-thru when two men approached the driver side window of her Ford Crown Victoria.
The men threatened the woman with a knife, but she was able to quickly drive away from the scene. She was not injured. The two men then ran west on Victory Drive toward the Pussy Cat Lounge.
About an hour later, police arrested Fermin Hernandez, 26, on Victory Drive. The Columbus man was charged with aggravated assault and appeared in Columbus Recorder’s Court Saturday. His case was bound over to Superior Court.
