Police Arrest Repeat Offender: 2nd Gas Station Disorderly Conduct, Menacing in Past Month Due to Apparent Delusions


According to a recent citation from Kentucky State Police, a Richmond man was apparently suffering from paranoid delusions that seem to mirror his previous arrest–from less than a month ago.

Police report that 21-year-old Alexander Harvey-Ogentho was located this time at the Love’s Gas Station in Madison County. Harvey-Ogentho was allegedly armed with a 4-inch long knife and was attempting to cut a victim. Similar to his recent arrest at the Redi Mart on 2nd street in Richmond, the Love’s gas station had to be cleared of customers for their safety.

When KSP troopers arrived on scene, the victim and Harvey-Ogentho had been separated, but he still had the knife in his posession.

When interviewed, Harvey-Ogentho allegedly told troopers when he was taken into custody that he had been watching the news, saying he saw “what was happening in New York,” and that “Muslims were going to attack the Empire State Building”.

Harvey-Ogentho told troopers that the victim he was brandishing the knife at was involved with this perceived threat. The citation continues, stating that Harvey-Ogentho then told police he pulled the knife on the victim as he was certain the victim was part of this plot in New York.

He was arrested without incident and lodged in the Madison County Detention Center on charges of 2nd degree Assault on a Service Animal, 1st Degree Wanton Endangerment, 1st Degree Disorderly Conduct, and Menacing.

Earlier this month, Alexander Harvey-Ogentho was arrested for a similar crime. Read the details from that citation here.
