(East Wenatchee, WA) On Sunday, at 3:13pm, Douglas County deputies were dispatched to a residence at 2500 SR 28 in reference to a report that an adult male was trying to stab people. Investigation revealed that Michael J. Renner, 27, of Wenatchee, had threatened two adult females inside the residence. Renner was a temporary guest at the residence and appeared to be under the influence of an unknown narcotic.
He had entered a bedroom where the two women were standing and was holding four kitchen knives. Renner was acting strangely and talking about demons and claimed he needed to save one of the females. The women were able to convince Renner to leave the bedroom and one of them then exited the residence through a back door to call for help.
Apparently Renner never actually attempted to stab anyone but his actions caused the victims to fear that he was going to. Renner was arrested and booked into the Chelan County Regional Jail for Assault 2nd Degree.
