MELBOURNE, Fla. – A shirtless 19-year-old man knocked on apartment doors with a knife in each hand Tuesday morning before making his way into an apartment and telling officers he is a “world famous wrestler,” according to the Melbourne Police Department.

Officers found Dylan Jones inside a man’s apartment after responding to a call of a suspicious person in Addison Pointe Apartment Homes off North Wickham Road, according to an arrest affidavit.

According to the report, officers were speaking to a resident who described a shirtless man knocking at his door with “something in his hands” when a neighbor ran out of his apartment with two steak knives, threw the knives to the ground and shouted to them, “he’s in here!”

Prior to running out to police, the man told officers he found his door was opened slightly and the “frame of the door was destroyed.” He then called 911 when he saw Jones in the hallway, but Jones made his way into the apartment with a knife in each hand, according to the affidavit.

Jones told the victim to hang up the phone before hanging it up himself and moved toward the victim while “making stabbing motions,” the report said.

Police then entered the apartment and while they attempted to take Jones into custody, he said he was a “world famous wrestler” and knows “how to fight.”

The department said Jones resisted officers and was tased in the middle of his back before he stopped struggling against them. He now faces burglary with assault and resisting officer charges.
