A Joplin man has been charged with unlawful use of a weapon in connection with a disturbance Wednesday inside a home at 502 S. McConnell Ave.

Officers were called to the address at 12:44 a.m. Wednesday.

Cpl. Chuck Niess of the Joplin Police Department said one of the occupants of the home, Amanda M. Wilson, 27, told police that Cornell E. Harbin, 38, came home and began tearing up toys and other items with a knife. Harbin also allegedly threatened Wilson with the knife, Niess said.

Harbin was arrested on an outstanding warrant for failure to appear at a parole violation hearing, and the Jasper County prosecutor’s office later filed the charge of unlawful use of a weapon against him related to the disturbance.

Niess said no injuries were reported in the incident.
