(ABC 6 News) - An Austin man faces charges for allegedly displaying a knife and threatening three teenagers. The three males … ages 14, 17 and 18 … told police they were sitting on a porch at a home in the 900 block of 11th avenue southwest just after five o’clock Saturday afternoon when the 18-year-old suspect came from between two houses.

The three said the 18-year-old approached them, speaking a language none of them understood. But they said at one point the man lifted his short, exposing a large knife, and said: “Do you want to lose your life?”

The teenagers grabbed the suspect and the knife fell to the ground. Police were called, and the suspect … later identified as Maro Ochalla … was eventually handcuffed and taken into custody after allegedly walking away from police, ignoring officers’ commands to stop.

Ochalla was taken to jail on charges that could include disorderly conduct, obstructing officers and trespassing.

A knife was found at the scene. But no one was hurt.
