An Atlantic County Grand Jury has indicted an Atlantic City man who allegedly struck one person in the head with a baseball bat, and threatened to "cut a woman's head off and throw it into the woods."

Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon Tyner says the defendant, 38, faces several charges, including:

"One County of this degree Terroristic Threats

One Count of third-degree Possession of a Weapon for Unlawful Purpose

One Count of fourth-degree Unlawful Possession of a Weapon

One Count of third-degree Purpose/Knowing Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon

On April 18, 2019, the defendant is alleged to have threatened to cut L.M.’s head off and throw it in the woods and also to cut her lips off and knock her teeth in. On April 19, 2019, the defendant is alleged to have assaulted D.M. with a baseball bat causing injury to D.M.’s head."
