A Montgomery County man is wanted by police in connection with an assault on his landlord.
Police said 23-year-old William Keith Kane of the 400 block of Franklin Street in Lansdale is facing a felony warrant after he assaulted the homeowner where Kane lived.
On March 9, the man who owned the home where Kane had been living in the basement since December, called police. He told them when he had told Kane he was behind on his rent and was breaking house rules, Kane grabbed a knife and walked toward him.
Kane screamed he wasn't going to pay the homeowner and he was going to kill him, police said.
The homeowner was able to grab the knife away from Kane, but suffered a cut to his hand, police said.
The next day, Kane left the house, and when he returned the homeowner asked for his house key, police said, but Kane refused and instead picked up a tire iron and threatened to kill the homeowner.
The man was able to get inside the house and called police.
When officers arrived, Kane had fled the area, police said.
Kane faces charges of aggravated assault, harassment, simple assault and related charges.
Police said Kane may be in the Boyertown area.
Anyone with information about Kane's whereabouts is asked to contact the Lansdale Police department at 215-368-1801.
