On Wednesday, April 6, 2022 at approximately 4:21 PM, officers of the Cumberland Police Department responded to the area of the Downtown Mall in reference to an assault complaint.  The alleged victim had reported that a black male, wearing blue clothing and red shoes, threatened him with a knife.  An officer who was patrolling the area observed a subject matching the description of the suspect.  The subject was later identified as Jai Johnson.  The officer asked Johnson multiple times to stop walking so that he could speak with him due to him matching the description of the suspect.  Johnson then yelled numerous curse words and told the officer that he was not going to speak with him.  Johnson then walked onto Frederick Street causing several vehicles to have to stop for him.  Johnson then fled on foot.  Officers were able to contact Johnson on Bedford Street and place him under arrest.  Johnson was transported to the police station and later released on a criminal citation pending trial.
