Man charged with menacing
Cops say defendant pulled gun on neighbor
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.
