ORISKANY, N.Y. – A Yorkville man is facing charges after allegedly threatening his girlfriend with a knife outside of Oneida County Correctional Facility Monday night.
According to the Oneida County Sheriff's Office, Michael B. Mack and his girlfriend got into a fight inside a vehicle after leaving a hotel on Airport Road. The two pulled into the Oneida County jail around 11:30 p.m. and the woman called 911 to report the dispute.
She got out and tried to enter the Law Enforcement Building to get help. That's when Mack got out of the parked vehicle and allegedly threatened her with a pocket knife.
The victim ran back to the parking lot to find an unlocked car to get into so the suspect couldn’t get to her. She eventually found an unlocked vehicle and got inside.
Sheriff’s deputies and Whitestown police arrived to jail parking lot, and found the victim when she flagged them down from the car she was hiding in. She told police Mack had threatened her with a knife.
Deputies found Mack in the parking lot and took him into custody.
Mack was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, menacing and aggravated family offense.
He is currently being held at the jail awaiting pre-trial arraignment.
