Officers arrested a man with a knife after responding to an attempted break-in at a local business last week, Grove City police reported.

Responding to an alarm at a business in the 3400 block of Gatnz Road around 2:15 a.m. Sept. 1, police found a broken window. The window sustained $750 worth of damage, but it did not appear anyone had gained entry to the business.

An officer on a bicycle saw a man walking away from a nearby line of trees, and when police approached him, the man ran away between houses toward Marshrun Drive before he was stopped by another officer in a cruiser, reports said. Police found a steak knife in the man's pocket and learned a warrant for his arrest had been issued through Columbus police for a traffic violationl.

The man, a 22-year-old Columbus resident, was arrested on a charge of carrying a concealed weapon and the warrant. He told police he did not break the window. The break-in remains under investigation.
