A man allegedly doused a New Haven house in gasoline and threatened to set it on fire during a domestic dispute Tuesday night.
Jonathan Jeffires, 24, reportedly fled when New Haven Police Officer K.C. Holbert arrived at 390 N. First St. around 7:34 p.m., running in the direction of Second Street.
“He was standing in the middle of the street when I got there and had a knife in his hand. When I got there he dropped the knife and took off,” Holbert said. “I had a good visual on him the whole time and was catching up to him.”
