Man Uses Machete to Threaten Kids
FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) _ A Fairfield man has been charged with threatening a group of neighborhood teens and destroying some mailboxes and a car mirror with a machete.
The Connecticut Post reports (http://bit.ly/189DxVj ) that 45-year-old Richard Morawski is scheduled to appear in court May 8 on charges of risk of injury to a minor, second-degree criminal mischief, second-degree breach of peace and second-degree threatening.
Morawski told police he was upset at the teens Friday night, because they were making noise outside his home as he was trying to sleep.
Court records show Morawski was convicted of similar charges in 2010 after police say he fired a rifle at two young men. Police say he had complained the men were disturbing the neighborhood in their cars with loud mufflers and blaring rap music.
