Pair arrested after disturbance on Home Blvd.

Galesburg police were dispatched to Home Blvd Saturday, August 8th in reference to a disturbance involving a weapon. A couple that lived in the neighborhood contacted police because a male subject kept hanging around a neighbor’s residence.

A black BB gun was located inside the sedan.
Kenney was then arrested for Aggravated Assault, Driving while License is Suspended, Operating an Uninsured Motor Vehicle, and a Knox County Warrant for Driving on a Suspended License. Hernandez was also arrested on a Knox County Warrant for resisting a peace officer. Both were transported to the Knox County Jail.
