A Redwood Falls man, Nicholas Yongshik Anderson, age 37. was sentenced in Redwood County Court after attacking two police officers with a knife last summer.

According to court documents, on July 27, Redwood Falls police officers were called to a report of a man in the vicinity of North Swain Street yelling to himself and saying someone’s legs were going to be broken. Officers located Anderson, and as one officer was exiting the squad car, Anderson rushed him with a knife, reportedly saying, “You were told not to come!”

As the officer attempted to retreat into the squad car, Anderson held the door open with one hand while still holding the knife in the other. As Anderson reportedly attempted to get into the car, the officer repeatedly ordered him to drop the knife and back away. Eventually the officer was able to close the door, and Anderson began walking away. After other officers arrived, Anderson was captured and placed under arrest.

On Feb. 12, Anderson was sentenced for felony second degree assault with a dangerous weapon to 25 months in the correctional facility in St. Cloud, stayed for five years, 202 days local confinement, five years supervised probation, and fines and fees of $285.
