A Kennewick man is charged with threatening to stab a family after pulling a folding knife from his pocket.
Juan D. Gomez-Macias, 18, pleaded innocent to felony harassment for the June 15 incident. Trial is scheduled Aug. 13.
According to court documents, the victim was walking to his home when he was approached by Gomez-Macias and another man. The victim "became fearful that the two men were getting ready to assault him," so he got onto his front lawn and told the men they were within range of surveillance cameras and anything they did would be caught on camera, documents said.
The victim's parents and siblings came outside after hearing yelling, and that's when Gomez-Macias allegedly pulled out the knife and made the threats.

Gomez-Macias also told the young man's parents "that he would find their kids some night and put holes in them," court documents said.
When contacted by police, Gomez-Macias admitted to pulling out an unopened knife but denied making any threats, documents said.
Bail for Gomez-Macias was set at $10,000.
