David McPeak is being held in the Canyon County Jail on a felony charges of aggravated assault and burglary after Caldwell police say he kicked in a door of home and threatened a woman with a knife late Wednesday night.
The 911 call to Caldwell police just before midnight reported the break-in at a house in the 1900 block of Brookside Drive as a home invasion robbery but officers later determined McPeak got into a fight with the womans husband earlier and went to the house later because of that.
Witnesses told police McPeak kicked in the front door, knocked over several items in the house, and threatened a woman who lived there with a knife before taking off. The woman was not hurt, police say
Witnesses gave police a good description of the car McPeak left in and an officer on patrol saw the car a short distance away from the home and pulled it over. It was during that stop that police found several packages of marijuana, which officers say appeared to be packaged for sale.
McPeak, who is also charged with felony counts of delivery of a controlled substance (marijuana) and a misdemeanor count of malicious injury to property, will make his initial court appearance Thursday afternoon.
The crimes of burglary and aggravated assault are punishable by up to 10 and 5 years in prison.
