ROCHESTER, Minn. - A 38-year-old man is facing a felony harassment charge after allegedly threatening a woman who was doing yard work.

Brandon Carmichael, of Minneapolis, was arrested Monday after he allegedly approached a woman in the 600 block of 5th Ave. SE.

After allegedly making sexual comments, the police said the woman took a picture of the man and said she was going to call the police.
