Parkville Man Allegedly Assaults Clerks, Calls Them "Terrorists"
The assault occurred at a Parkville 7-Eleven store on Sept. 15.
A man was arrested late Sunday after police say he broke the window of a convenience store and threatened two employees with a folding knife.
Jonathan David Constantine, 29, of the 2300 block of Ellen Avenue in Parkville was charged with two counts each of first- and second-degree assault and one count of malicious destruction of property.
According to a police report, around 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Constantine was involved in an argument with two employees of the 7-Eleven store at 8605 Old Harford Road.
Constantine called the two men terrorists and stated they should return to their country, the report says.
He then exited the store and broke a front window at which point the employees followed him outside. Constantine then allegedly pointed a knife at the two employees and left the store, according to the report.
He was arrested at his home without incident, the report says.
Constantine is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $50,000 bond, according to online court records. Those records also show that a preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for Oct. 12.
