Caldwell NJ Man Allegedly Threatened Police, Charged with Terroristic Threats

Caldwell New Jersey Terroristic Threats AttorneysCaldwell NJ police arrested a man who allegedly threatened to kill police officers during a tense standoff.

According to law enforcement, the suspect was wanted on two arrest warrants out of Caldwell and Glen Ridge. The warrants were for an earlier criminal charge for terroristic threats and a charge of failure to appear in court for Driving While Intoxicated (DWI).

The Caldwell Police Department and the Glen Ridge Police Department dispatched officers to the suspect’s residence on Bloomfield Avenue in Caldwell NJ to serve the arrest warrants.

When police officers knocked on the front door to the residence, the suspect allegedly peered through the shades on the door and threatened to murder the police officers. The suspect also allegedly held a “large knife” and tapped the weapon on the glass.

Caldwell and Glen Ridge police officers attempted to get the suspect to willingly leave the residence, but he reportedly refused to exit the house. He also allegedly warned police officers not to enter the home.

New Jersey State Police was alerted to the situation and dispatched officers to the scene. Police officers secured a perimeter around the suspect’s house, shut down nearby roads, and ushered neighbors away from the potentially volatile situation.

After several hours, the suspect was finally subdued and placed under arrest.

The 58-year-old suspect, who lives in Caldwell, New Jersey, now faces another criminal charge for making terroristic threats.

After being placed under arrest, the suspect was remanded to the Essex County Jail in Newark, NJ. He was being held at the correctional facility on an undisclosed bail amount.
