John William Allen, Jr., 75, of Muskogee is charged in Muskogee County District Court with breaking into the home of Silas Webster on N. 40th Street and walking toward him while opening and closing a pair of garden shears in a cutting motion, saying “I’m going to cut your head off,” according to documents filed with the case.

The event occurred on Nov. 24, but Allen was charged yesterday.

Police say Allen forced his way into the apartment, intending to harm Webster.

They have not indicated any motive. A warrant has been issued for Allen’s arrest.
