A North Platte man is facing charges after he allegedly threatened to kill a woman while children were present.
At around 5:43 p.m., on July 26, officers responded to the report of a domestic assault at a residence in the 2200 block of West 2nd Street.
Officers met with a 25-year-old female and 25-year-old Cory Tabbee, there were also two children under the age of five present.
It was reported that the victim had told Tabbee that she was going to leave and take the children with her.
According to Investigator John Deal, Tabbe became upset and grabbed a kitchen knife, raised it up over his head and threatened to kill the woman if she left with the children. Deal says the children were present while this took place.
The alleged victim was able to get out of the residence and call police.
Following further investigation, officers determined that there was probable cause to place Tabbee under arrest and charge him with felony terroristic threats, use of a weapon to commit a felony and child abuse.
Deal says the children were not injured in the ordeal and remained in the custody of their mother. Tabbee was jailed at the Lincoln County Detention Center.
