On Saturday, May 25 at approximately 7:45 p.m., Saugerties Police responded to a residence on Route 9W for a report of a dispute between neighbors involving the threat of knife. The dispute resulted from one neighbor complaining to the other that their music was being played too loud. During their argument, Vincent A. Sasso, 35, reportedly stated that he was “going to gut ” the complainants, and then brandished a knife to the two men he was arguing with.
Sasso was arrested and charged with two counts of second-degree menacing. Sasso was transported to Saugerties Police Headquarters where he was processed and then arraigned in the Town of Saugerties Justice Court. Incidental to arraignment, Sasso was released on his own recognizance with two orders of protection in place, one for each victim. Sasso is scheduled to reappear in the Town of Saugerties Justice Court on May 29 to answer his charges.
