A 45-year-old man is facing multiple charges after allegedly threatening his victim with a knife during a domestic dispute in Pearl River, police said.

Officers from the Orangetown Police Department were dispatched to a Pearl River home shortly before midnight on Sunday, March 10, where there was a report of a dispute involving Pearl River resident Hugh Lynch.

Police said that Lynch allegedly “subjected his victim to unwanted physical contact, causing pain and discomfort.” During the dispute, he also allegedly used a knife in a threatening manner toward his victim, leading to his arrest.

Lynch was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor count of second-degree menacing and harassment, a violation. Following arraignment, Lynch was released on his own recognizance. He is due back in Orangetown Justice Court later this month to answer the charges.
