A man discharged his gun into the ground to scare off a man with a knife and brass knuckles in Peoria.
Peoria police report that on September 13 they were called to an apartment complex near 82rd Avenue and Bell Road.
Witnesses say a man, identified as 28-year-old David Rubio, attacked three people by pushing them, pulling their hair, or punching them.
While hitting the last victim, Rubio allegedly pulled out a knife and brass knuckles and again advanced on the victim.
The victim pulled out a handgun and fired one shot into the ground, causing Rubio to run away.
He was later located, arrested, and charged with aggravated assault.
