A heroin addict trashed his sister-in-law's home and threatened her with a knife, all to obtain $40.

Police say the suspect knocked on the victim's door a little before 11 p.m. Thursday demanding the money. She gave it to him, but not before the suspect used a knife to intimidate her. Police say he also caused "extensive damage" to the inside of her home.

The suspect was gone before officers arrived on scene. They have identified him, but have not released his name. He has several warrants out for his arrest, but his whereabouts are currently unknown.

The incident happened on the 1500 block of Eagle View Drive in Colorado Springs.
