Darian Perry, 23, of Bergenfield threatened responding Officer James Acito and others in the North Washington Avenue store after police were called just after 4 a.m. about him “walking in and out of the business, causing a disturbance,” Capt. Mustafa Rabboh said.
Perry struggled as Acito began to arrest him – striking the officer in the face, “causing a laceration to the officer’s lip and a hand injury” – before being subdued, Rabboh said.
Police charged Perry with aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and making terroristic threats, among other counts, and sent him to the Bergen County Jail pending a detention hearing.
