A man was taken into custody after a mother and daughter claim he attacked them with a butcher knife.

According to an affidavit from Metro Nashville Police, the incident happened at a residence on Pin Oak Drive.

A mother and daughter apparently hired the suspect off Craigslist to hook up and hang a large television in their home. 

The TV apparently ended up being slanted on the wall, so they refused to pay him. That's when the victim's said the suspect grabbed a butcher knife in their kitchen and threatened to use it.

The mother managed to call 911 and police arrived at the scene, while they all were still arguing over the money.

The suspect was taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault.

No one was injured during the incident.
