A Sioux City man faces numerous charges after allegedly leading police on a chase Sept. 3.

According to a series of complaints by the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, Cole Huisenga, 19, was charged after officers arrived at 12:19 a.m. to 800 Oakcrest St. after receiving a report of a man with a knife.

The complaints said Huisenga was located in the 700 block of Oakcrest Street, where officers identified themselves to him and he allegedly took off running while holding the knife. Officers instructed Huisenga to stop, according to the complaints, but he did not. The complaints said he was located roughly three blocks away without the shorts he had previously been wearing.

Huisenga had allegedly removed the shorts during the chase. The shorts, according to the complaints, contained several stolen items.

The complaints also said Huisenga appeared intoxicated and provided a breath test result of .160. Huisenga also allegedly damaged numerous vehicles in the area of Oakcrest Street in attempt to gain access to them.

Huisenga is charged with four counts of third-degree attempted burglary, carrying weapons, second-degree criminal mischief, and five counts of third-degree burglary.

Second-degree criminal mischief is a Class-D felony.
