Mpd: Man Wields Two Knives During Argument – Crime

A Midland police officer responded to a disturbance with weapons at about midnight Friday in the 2300 block of Cloverdale Road. The investigators learned that Jordan, originally from Africa, had recently gotten married and moved to Midland about a month ago. Jordan told a female family member that he wanted her cellphone and $2,000 to get back to Africa because he did not want to be in Midland anymore. The woman said Jordan got very angry and threatened her with a folding razor blade shaver, according to the arrest affidavit. The woman said she grabbed the razor while Jordan was swinging it around her head. She told police she took the razor outside to hide it and when she came back inside Jordan had a large kitchen knife in his hand, according to the affidavit. Jordan told police the argument started because she was trying to cook African food and he told her she was not good at it.
