SL man accused of threatening to kidnap, eat children
A Storm Lake man has been jailed after allegedly chasing several children, telling them he was going to cut them into pieces and eat them, according to police.
Shortly before noon Thursday, the SLPD took a report of a harassment incident at an apartment complex at 1405 North Seneca.
Witnesses there told officers that King Kong Choul, age 47, of Storm Lake, had chased children there on Wednesday evening, threatening to kidnap and harm them.
A short time later, officers located Choul at the apartment complex and took him into custody. Following an investigation, they charged Choul with Harassment 1st Degree. He was booked into the Buena Vista County Jail on a $2,000 bond.
Choul, who is listed on the jail roster with a Denison address, had recently been released after a third-offense public intoxication arrest on July 7.
