December 17, 2018

A Norfolkan was arrested on felony charges after police received a report Sunday evening of a man using a rifle to threaten subjects in the street by their parked vehicles.

Capt. Mike Bauer with the Norfolk Police Division said officers were dispatched to the 200 block of South 15th Street just after 8 p.m.

By the time officers arrived on scene, the suspect, identified as Caleb C. Henry, 27, had gone into his nearby home.

The reporting party told officers that Henry was demanding they move their parked vehicles from his side of the street. When they refused, Henry allegedly went back into his home and reappeared with a rifle.

According to witnesses, Henry then demanded the cars be moved and threatened the others with the rifle.

The victims agreed to move the cars, and Henry went back into his home.

Officers went to Henry’s home and knocked on the door, where Henry appeared with a rifle in his hands, Bauer said.

Officers asked Henry to hand the rifle to them, and he complied.

Henry was then questioned by the officers about the incident that occurred over the parked vehicles. At the conclusion of the investigation, Henry was arrested for terroristic threats and for use of a weapon to commit a felony.

Henry was housed in the Norfolk City Jail and later transferred to the Madison County Jail.
