A 30-year-old man from Northern Westchester surrendered himself into police custody over the weekend after he allegedly threatened to kill a woman with a text message and during a phone call, investigators in Yorktown said.

Detectives from the Yorktown Police Department responded to a Mohegan Lake home at approximately 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 30, where there was a report of a domestic incident, police said. The complaint came after Yorktown Heights resident Joseph Gelbman threatened to kill his female victim in both a text message and during a phone call.

According to police, Gelbman was contacted by investigators and surrendered himself into custody at Yorktown Police Headquarters on March 30, where he was charged with two misdemeanor counts of aggravated harassment.

Gelbman was arraigned in Cortlandt Justice Court, where a temporary Order of Protection was issued in favor of his female victim. Gelbman was released following his arraignment and is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday, April 4 to respond to the charges.
