Police Neutralize Man with Knife in Eastport

From the Pleasant Point Police Department


At approximately 2:15 p.m., Officer Evans responded to assist Eastport Police Department due to a report of a domestic incident on High street in Eastport where a male was alleged to have a knife and was threatening a female. Upon arrival, Evans and an Eastport officer were told by the female that the male had fled the scene. While speaking to the female, the male involved appeared from the cabin of a boat that was in the yard and aggressively challenged the officers. While moving toward them, Officer Evans noticed the knife sticking out of his pocket and successfully deployed his taser rendering the male incapacitated after being told multiple times to stop. He was then taken into custody. Multiple charges are pending.
