STATE NEWS

Man accused of threats

MANSFIELD: Deputies arrested a man who was allegedly sexually touching teenage girls and making threats with razor blade knives in McDonald’s Saturday in Mansfield.

Newsnet5 reported Douglas L. Long, 69, of Mansfield is in Richland County Jail after witnesses said he dressed like a woman and threatened to cut throats and cut off male genitals.

He was issued a summons for sexual imposition, inducing panic and aggravated menacing.

Long reportedly put his hand up the back of a 16-year-old girl’s shirt and rubbed her back, and then rubbed her thigh. The Richland County Sheriff’s Office reports he rubbed another teenage girl’s leg and called both girls his girlfriends.

Newsnet5 reported Long told deputies he had the razor blade knives for self-defense, though witnesses said he held them in front of people’s faces.

The sheriff’s office reported Long ripped up the copy of his third summons, stuffed it in his mouth and swallowed it.
