NAUGATUCK — A town man faces three misdemeanors and a felony after police say he came after an officer and another person “while holding a knife.”
Around 7:30 p.m. Aug. 24, officers were sent to a High Street home for what was described by police as a “general complaint where the accused was missing and committed a larceny from the residence.”
The suspect, later identified as 60-year-old Michael Saladino, “came after the victim and officer while holding a knife,” as officers were investigating, police said Tuesday.
“The accused was under the influence of alcohol and had an intent to cause serious bodily harm,” police said.
The officers were able to get control of the situation, police said, and prevent Saladino from causing any injuries with the knife.
Saladino, of High Street in Naugatuck, was charged with second-degree threatening, second-degree breach of peace, first-degree reckless endangerment and violation of a protective order. The first three charges are misdemeanors, while the violation of a protective order is a felony.
Court documents show his bond was set at $50,000, but Saladino was not released from custody. He is next expected in court on Sept. 11, when he will enter a plea.
