A young Idaho Falls man is facing aggravated assault charges after pulling a knife on his roommates.

Police say it happened inside “Brighter Tomorrow,” which is a group home for troubled teens. All of the people involved live there.

The victims say they thought Ryan Dyer was going to throw two knives at them. But police were able to negotiate and Dyer let his roommates go.

He was then arrested and taken to the Behavioral Health Center.

He says he quit taking his anti-depression medication a week ago. Once he’s released from BHC, he’ll be charged.
