WATERVILLE — A Vassalboro man who allegedly threatened a man with a knife Monday on Moody Street is scheduled to answer to the charge on June 22 in Kennebec County Superior Court.

Isaac O’Connor, 18, of 2483 Riverside Drive, Vassalboro, was arrested Wednesday and charged with criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, according to Deputy police Chief Charles Rumsey.

Rumsey said that a caller reported being threatened with a knife around 8 p.m. Monday on Moody Street, which is off Cool Street. Police later identified the person who made the threat as O’Connor.

The caller’s mother had been involved in a minor vehicle accident on the street with a car driven by O’Connor’s girlfriend, Rumsey said. There were no injuries in the accident.

O’Connor’s girlfriend and the woman driving the other car were talking when O’Connor came out of a house where he had been visiting his mother and started yelling at the other woman, Rumsey said.

The man who called police, the son of the other woman, said that he told O’Connor to stop yelling at his mother, Rumsey said.


Rumsey said, “O’Connor brandished a knife” and asked the man “Do you want to get cut?” as he advanced toward him and “backed him up to the house.”

The man “went into the house and armed himself with a mop handle and came back outside because he was concerned about his mother,” Rumsey said.

O’Connor’s girlfriend got O’Connor into a car and they drove off, Rumsey said.

The investigating officer, Cody Vigue, couldn’t find O’Connor, so he completed an affidavit for a temporary warrant on the charge of criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, a class C felony.

O’Connor was arrested at 3:15 p.m. Wednesday by Officer Ryan Dinsmore, who found him at a business on Main Street, Rumsey said.

O’Connor was released Wednesday from the police station on $750 unsecured bail and is scheduled to appear in Kennebec County Superior Court at 8:30 a.m. June 22.
