Client charged with assault with a weapon, uttering threats, and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.  Complainant was driving downtown when suddenly a suspect ran in front of his vehicle.  When the complainant stopped his vehicle the suspect reached through the window, held a knife to the complainant’s  throat, and threatened to kill him.  Client apprehended a short time later and a short distance away with a knife in his possession.  Client acquitted at trial when trial judge accepted that frailties in eyewitness identification and potential for tainting of the identification would make conviction unsafe.
