The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office says they arrested a Morgan City man after he was terminated from his job.

Deputies were called out to a business on Highway 182 in Amelia after the victims say former employee, 52-year-old Ronald L. Johnson, pulled out a knife and threatened them.

Another deputy arrested Johnson while he was seen walking down Highway 182 after leaving the business.  The deputy found the knife on Johnson.

Johnson was arrested on two counts of aggravated battery and taken to the St. Mary Parish Jail.
