DAVENPORT -- A Davenport man is being held without bond in Scott County Jail after he allegedly stabbed two Davenport police officers and earlier threatened a woman on Monday.
Rick Timothy Sullivan, 36, is being held on two felony counts of assault on a police officer, along with an aggravated misdemeanor charge of domestic-abuse assault with intent or displaying a weapon.
Here's what happened, official documents say:
Police responded shortly after 10:30 a.m. to a “domestic problem” in the 4000 block of Cresthill Drive, Davenport, where a woman said Sullivan became angry about tree cutters coming to cut down a tree.
She told officers Sullivan had a butter knife in his hand and came toward her, threatening to kill her while brandishing the knife. She backed up and Sullivan pushed her down, causing her to strike a coffee table with her chest and hit her knee.
She feared for her life and “sustained pain but no visible injuries.”
