A man assaulted a security guard at Olean General Hospital and then pulled a knife on responding officers, according to Olean Police.

Authorities say 46-year-old Robert Nelson of Portville assaulted the guard overnight at Olean General and police were called. When officers got on scene, they say Nelson pulled out a knife and threatened to stab them.

Nelson reportedly fought with officers, who took him into custody and charged him with second degree menacing, third degree assault, fourth degree criminal mischief, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

He was taken to the city jail pending arraignment.
