assault with knife
A Rutland man who allegedly threatened to stab two people in an argument on Park Street denied a felony charge this week.
Brian K. Hathaway, 50, pleaded innocent in Rutland criminal court to a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Hathaway, who appeared in court on a citation, remains free on court-ordered conditions that he stay away from the people he allegedly threatened, as well as their homes and workplaces.
Rutland City Police said Hathaway threatened his neighbor, Brenda Terry, 45, and her co-worker Robert Lacroix, 27, with a knife outside his apartment at 116 Park Ave. on Sept. 16.
During the incident, police said, Hathaway complained about items missing from his home and threatened to cut the throats of Terry and Lacroix.
Hathaway told police someone was stealing his possessions and that he would “shoot anyone who came near his belongings again,” court records state.
