New Orleans police have arrested Oscar Sanchez, 30, in connection with an assault late Friday night in the 1100 block of Decatur Street in the French Quarter.

Officer Frank Robertson said Sanchez tried to kiss a 31-year-old woman in the block while intoxicated. When the woman walked away with a male companion and went into a bar, Sanchez followed.

A security guard blocked his way, so Sanchez produced a small box cutter with which he threatened the victims, police said. He was arrested later in the area and booked on three counts of aggravated assault.
