Argument over sex led to threats
Farmington Minnesota P.O. Box 192 / 312 Oak St. 55024

A 52-year-old Rosemount man faces felony charges of making terroristic threats after he reportedly threatened to stab a Farmington woman April 13.


According to a complaint filed this week in the Dakota County Attorney's office Randy Gene Greger threatened to kill the woman after she refused to have sex with him.

Farmington police responded to a report of a possible domestic dispute around 11:43 p.m. A neighbor in the townhome complex reported hearing a lot of yelling and banging to the point the walls were rattling. When police arrived the home's main door was open and police could hear a woman crying and yelling for Greger to stop. According to the complaint, the woman told police Greger had tried to stab her. Police found a kitchen knife on the floor near Greger.

The woman told police Greger was an acquaintance and that they were not romantically involved. She said Greger had been at her home earlier that evening, then left and returned. When she refused to have sex with him he reportedly became angry and started throwing chairs and threatening the woman. The woman told police she was pleading with Greger not to kill her when police arrived.

If convicted on a charge of making terroristic threats Greger could face up to five years in jail and fines of up to $10,000.
