DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) Police arrested a homeless man after they say he assaulted two women with a knife in downtown Dallas on Sunday.

Police say the man, 22-year-old Brandon Holbert, approached three
women just after 12:20 p.m. at the intersection of Main Street and North Ervay Street.

According to police, Holbert accused the women of photographing him and while ranting at the women, he pulled out a pocket knife and made threats.

Police say two of the women ran from the suspect and into the Wilson Building in the 1600 block of Main Street. Holbert allegedly cornered them in an elevator and cut them with a knife on the face, arms and shoulders.

One of the victims was able to escape the elevator and ran out of the building. The other woman was taken to an apartment inside the building by a witness.

Police say a Good Samaritan then held the door to the building closed, locking the suspect inside until police arrived.
