    City man is jailed

    on assault charge

    A Rutland man who allegedly threatened a woman with a knife in Forest Park denied a pair of criminal charges Tuesday.

    Christopher J. Scinto, 23, pleaded innocent in Rutland criminal court to a felony charge of first-degree domestic assault with a deadly weapon and a misdemeanor charge of interference with access to emergency services.

    Judge Theresa DiMauro set bail at $5,000 and Scinto was released to the Brattleboro Retreat.

    Rutland Police said Scinto held a large kitchen knife to the chest of a woman during an argument Monday in an apartment at Forest Park.

    Scinto also allegedly wrestled a phone away from the woman when she tried to call for help.
