Temper tantrum

Police took a man into custody who they say engaged in disorderly conduct at a car service on Neptune Avenue on July 15.

A woman who was in the car service near Brighton Fourth Street at 12:59 am told police she saw the man acting violently — breaking two glass bottles, throwing a large sandbag and trash all over the floor, and repeatedly hitting the partition with a wooden stick. The woman also said the man yelled several threats and curses at her.

She told police the suspect was drinking alcohol from an open container throughout the duration of the incident.

The man has been charged with disorderly conduct, harassment, and consumption of alcohol in public.

Problems from the kitchen

A man is charged with threatening another man at knifepoint on Mermaid Avenue on July 15.

The victim said he was between W. 16th and W. 17th Streets at 8:25 pm when the suspect approached him brandishing a large kitchen knife and threatening to stab him. Police say the victim was able to take the knife away from the suspect before any damage was done.

The man faces criminal possession of a weapon.

Choke valve

The suspect is charged with attempted assault.
