RICHFIELD SPRINGS, N.Y. – A Richfield Springs man was arrested after allegedly threatening two teens with a knife in Richfield Springs last week.
Thomas A. Niznik, 45, is charged with two counts of menacing and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
The teens said they were riding their bikes on James Street in Richfield Springs when one of their bike chains broke. Niznik allegedly went up to the teens and threatened them with a knife. The two immediately went home and told an adult, who then called 911 and reported Niznik as a suspect.
Troopers were able to find Niznik and take him into custody. He was processed and released with an appearance ticket.
