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.
