Sex offender attacks news reporters

News crews learned Darren Kawamoto recently moved to Oakdale from Fresno and they went to his home to try to interview him about failing to properly register as a sex offender.

The reporters say Kawamoto began yelling and shoving them and threatened to cut their throats with a box cutter; he added that if he saw the footage on air, he would come after them.

Officers arrested Kawamoto on four counts of assault.
