Knife-wielding carnival worker arrested: Police arrested a 32-year-old-man described as a transient carnival worker from Portland Saturday evening, alleging that he tried to stab an officer with a box knife.

The man arrived in Sultan as part of a carnival crew and went into a tavern where he allegedly told patrons that he had committed three murders in Oregon, according to a police statement.

One of the patrons notified police, but the man had left the tavern and was walking back toward the carnival staging area.

A Sultan police officer stopped the man and as he was talking with him, the man pulled out the box knife from his pocket, flicked it open and brandished it toward the officer.

The officer knocked the knife to the ground and took the man into custody.

Oregon law enforcement officials have been notified.
