      Myrtle Beach suspect accused of threatening man with knife

      A Myrtle Beach man is facing Assault, Burglary, and Weapons charges after police said he went into a home and pulled a knife on a man.

      On Monday night around 10:15 p.m. Myrtle Beach police were called to 407 5th Avenue North on reports of a suspicious man.

      The victim told officers that Anthony Desmond Booker, 44, of Myrtle Beach entered the house and approached him with an extended lock blade knife.

      According the Myrtle Beach Police report, the victim said Booker did not try to stab him, but said "I'm going to get you."
