Delray Man threatens family with knife and pepper spray
Delray Beach, Fla (CBS 12) —
What began as an argument quickly escalated to threats with a knife and pepper spray being released inside a Delray Beach house, according to a Police report.
Lamar Donnell Allen, 29, got into an heated exchange with a woman at her Delray Beach residence. The woman had allowed Allen to stay at the home for several weeks, but then asked him to leave due to his excessive drinking. Allen threatened her with a knife and eventually locked her outside while Allen and two young girls were inside. Police were called and upon opening the door it was clear Allen had used mace or pepper spray inside the home. The two girls, 12 and 11 years of age, showed signs of exposure to pepper spray. Allen was arrested and charged with child abuse without great bodily harm.
