Man charged with men­ac­ing

Cops say de­fen­dant pulled gun on neigh­bor

Newark Post - - FRONT PAGE -

A Ne­wark man was ar­rested last week after al­legedly point­ing a gun at his neigh­bor dur­ing a dis­pute, po­lice said.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened at ap­prox­i­mately 2:30 a.m. Aug. 25 at Vic­to­ria Mews Apart­ments in the unit block of O’Daniel Av­enue, said Lt. Fred Nel­son, a spokesman for the Ne­wark Po­lice Depart­ment.

Nel­son said Craig Daw­son, 64, was ar­gu­ing with his 33-year-old male neigh­bor about noise the neigh­bor was mak­ing. At some point, Daw­son al­legedly pointed a hand­gun at the neigh­bor’s face.

A wit­ness con­firmed the neigh­bor’s ac­count of the in­ci­dent, and of­fi­cers re­cov­ered a loaded .38-cal­iber Smith & Wes­son re­volver in Daw­son’s apart­ment, Nel­son said.

Daw­son was charged with ag­gra­vated men­ac­ing and pos­ses­sion of a deadly weapon dur­ing the com­mis­sion of a felony and was re­leased on $6,000 se­cured bond.
