Devon Arias

POCATELLO — A 20-year-old Pocatello man has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault after he allegedly threatened a woman and injured a man with a knife.

Devon G. Arias has been charged with the felony crimes in Bannock County. A hearing that will determine if there is enough evidence to take his case to trial has been set for July 29.

The crimes allegedly occurred during a disturbance on the 100 block of North Grant Avenue on Friday.

Pocatello police say Arias allegedly threatened an adult female with a large serrated knife. She yelled for help and several people barged into the apartment to assist her.

Arias reportedly swung the knife toward those who entered and a 49-year-old male, who put his arms up in self defense, sustained cuts on one of his fingers and a forearm.
