First-Degree Assault Charge For Knife Threat
OCEAN CITY — An Ocean City man was arrested on first-degree assault and other charges last weekend after allegedly threatening a female victim with a knife.
Around 7:45 p.m. last Saturday, an Ocean City Police Department (OCPD) officer responded to a residence on Colonial Avenue for a reported assault that had occurred. The officer met with a female victim who told police her friend had called 911. The victim told police another female friend had called her the day before upset and crying about her current living situation. The victim’s friend had been living with a male, identified as Randolph Main, Jr., 44, of Ocean City, and another female.
The victim’s friend stayed over the night before, but when the victim woke up early Saturday morning, her friend was gone. The victim texted her friend to see if she was okay and got a return text message from Main stating he was going to come over to her house in five minutes and “kick her [expletive deleted],” according to police reports.
