Christopher Gauthier, of Boise, came out of his home Friday morning with the knives as his neighbors were leaving for the day, reported the Idaho Statesman.
The victim said he loaded his two young daughters into his car for school, turned on the engine to warm it up and went back inside to get an item he’d forgotten.
That’s when the 38-year-old Gauthier ran outside, opened the car door and made a “scary face” at the girls, turned off the engine and ran back into his apartment with the neighbor’s keys.
The girls ran crying toward their home.
The neighbor yelled for Gauthier to return his car keys, and police said he came outside and threatened the man with two kitchen knives. Read more.

Later that morning, the victim yelled out that he wanted his keys back. That’s when Gauthier came outside and allegedly threatened the man, police said. Officers returned and took Gauthier into custody.
He denied having the victim’s keys. However, police later obtained a warrant and searched the apartment and found the keys.
Gauthier is charged with malicious harassment and burglary, both felonies.
Steckel set bail at $200,000. Gauthier is scheduled to return to court Oct. 28 for a preliminary hearing.
Gauthier spent 124 days in the Ada County Jail in 2014 for an assault on certain personnel and battery. He was also convicted of battery in 2008 and burglary in 2000. He was also convicted in California in 2001 for threatening a crime with the intent to terrorize. Read more.
Racism has terribly infested the American society so much that, Black people cannot even live safely in the country. It seems the white racist aren’t happy about the end of Black slavery and wants to do everything to further subject Black people to oppression and servitude. This white racist is supposed to pay the full penalty for his action. This is a clear incidence of racial hate crime and it shouldn’t be tolerated in our society. We have the same rights as the whites to live a peaceable life.
