Man Threatening People with His Knife Near McDonald’s on Clayton Road

If you’re in the area of McDonald’s on Clayton Road in Concord, keep your eyes out for a guy threatening to kill people.

Our friend “J” tells us a homeless looking man was threatening to kill people with his folding knife just before 6pm on Wednesday night.

The suspect is described as a white male adult with a black shirt and blue back pack. He has blonde hair and was about 5’6″ tall and 100 (yes, 100) pounds.

He was last seen walking on Clayton Road towards the City of Clayton.

Concord Police were called, but apparently didn’t find the suspect.

Paranoia from too much meth?? He sounds not only dangerous but delusional. I hope that he is brought in before he hurts someone……

Can you say 5150?

Parsnip April 24, 2013 at 8:13 PM

Shoo, fly. Don’t bother me.

Concord April 24, 2013 at 8:17 PM

Oh, I’m sure he’s right over hanging out on that bench by the 76 station or at FoodMaxx.

Wish we Open Carry dart guns, like the type to tranquilize wild animals in Africa. Bring him down, take him to the psych ward in Martinez and get him off the street. Better than a Glock, in my opinion.

I’m glad that I changed my mind about going their this evening with my daughter.

Once we legalize meth this won’t happen.

Anon April 24, 2013 at 8:26 PM

100 lbs, likely he’s out of his mind, not likely drugs.

California nightmare April 24, 2013 at 8:34 PM

The state legislature is considering a “homeless bill of rights” which, if passed, will allow homeless vagrants free reign in the city of their choosing. No more enforcing vagrancy, loitering, or public intoxication laws. If they look “homeless” they will be untouchable.

This crazy law actually made it out of committee!

The democrat legislature has lost its mind. This is not compassion, this is lunacy. Just another chapter in our California nightmare.

Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco, framed Assembly Bill 5 as an attempt to create a statewide baseline of homeless civil rights, citing a proliferation of municipal ordinances cracking down on behavior like lying or sleeping on the sidewalk as examples of the “criminalization of poor people.”

Tweekers suck.

Killjoy April 24, 2013 at 8:54 PM

Actually, if the police find him and he pulls his knife on them, they will shoot him.
Homeless bill of rights or not.

dilligafman April 24, 2013 at 8:55 PM

quick, someone call the mothership!

Cracky McGee April 24, 2013 at 9:07 PM

Seen it several times … the CPD does a quick drive by, makes a u-turn then takes off at light speed … I guess that is called “unable to locate suspect” … Go figure!

Anon April 24, 2013 at 9:11 PM

Write to your reps, tell them the homeless bill of rights is insane:

ML April 24, 2013 at 9:13 PM

Send him to Arizona on a bus.

anonymous April 24, 2013 at 9:20 PM

They should look for him at home

time to go hunting.

Shoot the bastard!

@ #5 I like the way you think 🙂

Art To Choke Hearts April 24, 2013 at 11:23 PM

@ #8 uh..hes probably 100 lbs. and out of his mind BECAUSE he is on drugs…

Hot Air April 25, 2013 at 12:50 AM

It’s a sad commentary how many blustering keyboard jockeys here think the answer to so many situations is to whip out a gun or whatever it is they think will instill instant control. Scammer comes to your door? Answer the knock with a Glock. Homeless dude out of control? Take him out with a well-placed bullet. Life is not a video game.

JrConcord April 25, 2013 at 6:59 AM

@Hot Air
You forgot home invaders,aliigator lizards,milky water in your local pond,and packs of unleashed dogs and their owners. A gun is the solution. 🙂

Anonamomma April 25, 2013 at 7:22 AM

Ammiano is useless. A complete twit. Let’s send the homeless to his residence

So Sad April 25, 2013 at 8:46 AM

@Hot Air, I so agree with you. If the truth were known, and they had to use their weapons they would probably pee themselves, or their the “Macho Cop” off duty. You know the one who comes home after a frustrating day and beats his wife, because his girlfriend won’t answer his call.

anon April 25, 2013 at 8:47 AM

I am shocked and appalled at the lack of concern toward this young man and his high potential for causing great harm. He is clearly showing high levels of anti-social and aggressive behavior and exhibiting poor-decision making skills.

It is clear that after the recent events in Sandy Hook, Tuscon, Aurora and now Boston that family, friends, schools, and local communities knew of the instability and potential harm that these young men could cause. What happened last evening at McDonald’s should be ringing warning bells in our community to do something to help stop a possible trajedy with intervention.

Isn’t counseling and support more effective now with this man who is already acting out before he does something larger and tragic? Maybe people like this should loose their freedom to harm and be placed in institution.

Mac April 25, 2013 at 9:02 AM

Like LL once said “Mamma said Knock U Out”

anon April 25, 2013 at 9:02 AM

Ignoring things like this and shruging them off as not important is a disaster waiting to happen. I married a man who seemed like the nicest, sweetest and intelligent.His family kept his violent rages quiet and never talked about it. That is, until he broke my nose twice and threw me down and choked me and slammed my head into walls and floors. Then they mentioned that he had this problem growing up and as a young man – even to the point they were so terrified that he was going to kill them that they locked him out of the house for safety. Violent anger as exhibited by this man in McDonald’s should be recognized for what it is – unacceptable violence that is not appropriate in public or private. He needs to be sought out by public authorities and steered into a mental health program before he does more harm.

The Professor April 25, 2013 at 9:18 AM

Mybe we’ll get lucky and he will try to run across the street against the light.

This “poor soul” might be crazy now, but he wasn’t when he chose this life.

Kick him in the nuts!

New Girl April 25, 2013 at 9:23 AM

It’s amazing. If this had been a black, mexican or middle eastern man people would be up in arms about how horrible those races are yet since it’s a white man no one mentions it… all races have their bad seeds so stop assigning the blame to one group or another. For the record this is a white girl saying this so don’t assume I am complaining about society’s perception of my race.

Jazzguy April 25, 2013 at 9:25 AM

@ anon #27 I wouldn’t mix Sandy Hook, Aurora and Tuscon with the Brothers Tsarmaev-different situations. In the first three, you’re right, somebody (family,friends) knew something and didn’t say anything. The results of keeping quiet resulted in many deaths. Boston was much different as it has political implications from the start-Muslim terrorists on a mission to kill infidels.CIA & FBI knew these guys were a threat and dropped the ball (possibly intentionally).
The McDonalds incident last night smells like a violent homeless POS doing what he does-he isn’t the first, and won’t be the last.We don’t build enough prisons, so there is little chance he will get mental help from a state institution.This guy is probably beyond counseling.
Sounds like he will have it out with the CPD before too long.

You can pick up a nice Aluminum Bat April 25, 2013 at 9:32 AM

at K-Mart for less than $20…..Hint Hint…

Bishop Estates April 25, 2013 at 9:43 AM

@ #29 Couldn’t agree with you more, mental issues need to be dealt with. When people receive the correct therapy & med’s they can be wonderful contributing adults.

Mary April 25, 2013 at 11:35 AM

At least he should have gotten a Happy Meal to send him off his merry way.

God my beautiful state that was once called the “Golden State” is now long gone thanks to liberals. Maybe this poor man should have been sent to one of our political leader’s home for a friendly visit to see how it feels what we peons have to go thru.

What is wrong with having these homeless meth heads running around with a knife and threatening people? So insensitive.

We should spend more money on all the services that they are provided. Food, shelters, medicine, etc. and their methadone. I personally would like to see more people living in parks and under freeways and leaving their needles on the ground, defecating on the streets or parks, letting their pit bulls roam free, drinking 40’s and harassing people. Have a heart

Pam April 25, 2013 at 1:45 PM

Homelees druggies and alcoholics running around claycord with guns and knives. What has claycord come to?

anonanonagain April 25, 2013 at 4:37 PM

I believe it’s more than mental issues here. He’s 100lbs!! as a witness described!!! That’s not from mental issues, that is from methamphetamine use. They usually become delusional, paranoid and erratic. Food and sustenance is forgotten and meth takes over. It’s sad.

debi April 26, 2013 at 8:54 AM

whats up lately with all the plain clothes cops n black n whites hanging out in my neighborhood? Is something bad going on around here that we should know about , clayton rd between bailey n ayers on hartnell ct n milne ct ?
