LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A Louisville man was arrested on multiple charges after police said he allegedly burglarized the home of the mother of his children.
According to the police report, Anthony Mack and three unknown males entered a home with intent to commit criminal offenses.
The victim reported she was asleep on the couch at the time and when she awoke, Mack told her not to move and ordered another male to remove her phone.
Then, Mack reportedly told the others to search the apartment and had one retrieve a knife from the kitchen. Mack took the knife and sat across from her, telling her not to move. He then threw gas from a beer can on her and reportedly told her “you are going to die tonight. I am going to burn you,” while holding a lighter in his hand.
When Mack told the others that it was time to go, he allegedly told the victim that she was also leaving with them. When they got outside, Mack asked her what she planned to do about an upcoming court date where Mack was charged with assault against the woman. He told her that if she did anything against him, he would know because he had people watching her and they would kill her.
Mack then left the residence with the others.
The children were asleep inside the residence at the time of the incident.
Mack is facing first degree burglary, first degree wanton endangerment, intimidating a participant in the legal process, violation of a Kentucky EPO/DVO, third degree terroristic threatening and first degree arson (attempt).
