Police intervention was required in Northern Westchester after a man allegedly threatened several people in his building with a knife, according to New York State Police investigators.

An investigation into an incident last month led to the arrest of North Salem resident Edwin Martinez Ventura, 36, this week, who now faces charges that include second-degree menacing and criminal possession of a weapon, both misdemeanors.

New York State Police troopers were dispatched to a Route 22 property in North Salem at approximately 2 a.m. on March 4, where there was a report of a menacing incident involving a knife-wielding man. Further investigation determined that Ventura allegedly menaced two victims who lived in the same building with a knife, threatening them.

Following arraignment, Ventura was remanded to the Westchester County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in the Town of North Salem Court later this month to answer the charges.
