Two arrested in Trenton for threat, stolen car

An investigation to a man threatening a citizen with a knife in Trenton Wednesday evening led to the arrests of two out of town residents on multiple charges.

Trenton Police Chief Henry Hamlet responded to the Clarksville Street home and found 40-year old Peter Paffen of Washington, D.C. standing on the porch, intoxicated and in possession of a knife. Paffen was arrested and charged with public intoxication, terroristic threatening, first-degree wanton endangerment and carrying a concealed deadly weapon.

A woman at the home, 55-year old Maria Bradham of South Carolina, was found to be in possession of a stolen car. She was arrested for receiving stolen property, and was served with a Montgomery County warrant for theft of a vehicle.

Guthrie Police Sgt. Dean Blumel and Todd County Sheriff’s Deputy Kevin Saunders assisted chief Hamlet.
