A man was arrested and charged with harassment after he threatened to cut his neighbor’s balls off, police in Washington said.

Puyallup Police said that they arrested 51-year-old Daniel Urton on Thursday, after he threatened his neighbor with an ax because he accused him of stealing his underwear.

According to an indictment filed with the Superior Court of Pierce County, the victim was outside his home around 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, when Urton shouted across the yard to him, asking if he had the keys to the car.

When the victim told him that he did not know what he was talking about, Urton pulled out an ax and started walking toward the victim. The victim asked Urton what he was doing, and Urton replied: “I’m going to kill you. I will cut your balls off.”

The victim ran inside his house and called 911, telling the police dispatcher that he felt threatened and thought Urton will hurt him with the ax. When police officers arrived, they saw Urton walking on the street with a woman who turned out to be his sister.

They arrested Urton, who told officers that he had two knives on him. Urton also told officers that the victim had his car keys, was stealing his underwear and had secret cameras hidden inside his house.

Urton admitted to walking toward the victim’s home with an ax. When he was asked why, he reiterated: “I was going to cut off his balls.”

Urton’s sister, who was visibly shaken and crying, said that he had just threatened to beat her if she did not let him use her phone. She also told police that her brother is not a bad person when he takes his lithium.
