Man arrested after brandishing cane and machete during argument Tuesday night


On Tuesday, February 14th, 2023, at 8:24 pm, the Turlock Police Department was dispatched to a reported weapon offense that had just occurred at 250 D St, Turlock, after a man had brandished a machete during an argument.

When officers arrived on scene, they made contact with the victim who told them that he and Alan Johnson, 49, of Turlock, had gotten into an argument. During the argument, Johnson had grabbed a cane and machete from his property and walked toward the victim. The victim felt threatened and believed that Johnson was going to harm him, so he grabbed a pole from his belongings to defend himself and create distance from Johnson. Johnson eventually calmed down and walked away from the victim.
