Monday, December 23, 2013 - by Hollie Webb

A Chattanooga man is awaiting a court hearing after police said he recently used a pocket knife to scare his girlfriend and and her friend and steal the girlfriend's car.

According to police, 25-year-old Kedrick Bush threatened former girlfriend Jennifer Frizzell and her friend, Deanna McKinley, with the knife after arriving at Ms. Frizzell’s home intoxicated.

Police said Bush yelled at Ms. Frizzell to start packing her things. She told police that Bush started pointing the knife at Ms. McKinley immediately after.

Ms. McKinley told police that Bush said, “I will stab you and slit your throat and cut your aorta and watch you bleed out.”

At the time, Ms. Frizzell told police she had been wearing her keys around her neck on a lanyard. She said Bush grabbed her by her hair and jerked the keys from her neck. After that, he went to her car without her permission and drove away.

In addition to the aggravated assault charge, Bush was charged with domestic assault and theft over $5,000 for the car.

Bond was set at $5,000.
