Auburn Man Reportedly Threatens Roommate With Running Chainsaw

AUBURN (CBS13) – A 63-year-old Auburn man was arrested after he threatened his roommate with a revved-up chainsaw, according to police.

Officers responded to a residence near Gold and Virginia streets on Thursday at about 12:13 a.m. and arrested Marvin Daniels.

Daniels reportedly chased his roommate down a hallway to a bedroom carrying a revved-up chainsaw. He then went outside and took the screen off the roommate’s bedroom window and held the running chainsaw inside the window, police said.

The roommate was able to escape to a neighbor’s house and call 911.

Daniels was arrested and booked into the Placer County jail for brandishing a weapon, making criminal threats and violation of probation.

No information was released on why Daniels allegedly went after his roommate with the chainsaw.
