ROCHESTER, Minn. - A Rochester man is facing multiple charges after allegedly chasing after a man who he owed money.

Gene Johnson, 49, is accused of owing the victim $30, and when the victim came to an apartment complex at 1934 8 ½ St. SE Johnson allegedly chased after him with a knife and threatened to kill him.

He’s facing charges of second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon and terroristic threats.

The victim came back at 3:10 p.m. and that’s when he was threatened with a knife.
