    A man armed with two butcher knives and a bulletproof vest was arrested after threatening a group of people, according to Boston Police.

    Steven Lacolla, 26, of Boston, was arrested Sunday morning around 3 a.m.

    Police say they responded to the area of 17 Cooper St. in the North End and found Lacolla yelling at a group of people gathered in the street.

    They say Lacolla then turned to police as they arrived and began to walk towards them, still armed with the knives.

    Lacolla eventually placed the knives on the ground after multiple orders to drop the weapons.

    He will be arraigned in court on charges of Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon and Wearing a Bulletproof Vest in the Commission of a Felony.
