Police manage to get knife-armed man out of bathroom

A man, who lives in the Wrigley Park section of Paterson between East 23rd Street and 10th Avenue, on Monday night, armed with a knife in hand, locked himself inside a bathroom after a quarrel with his mother; the mother called the police.

Paterson Police arrived on the scene little after 9pm, gently negotiated with the 20-year-old; and the incident, which could have ended like a similar incident that resulted in the loss of a life in Redwood Avenue last year, came to a peaceful conclusion after about an hour.

The man, who locked himself inside the bathroom, was charged with domestic violence.
