Police officers threatened with kitchen knives

Police say a man threatened officers with kitchen knives when they responded to a call in Huntington Station earlier this week.

When 2nd Precinct officers Joseph Reilly and Michael Lavrovsky responded to the domestic incident on East 20th Street Wednesday afternoon, the Suffolk County Police Department said, the suspect was holding a kitchen knife in each hand.

According to police, the man confronted Reilly and Lavrovsky, walking toward them threateningly and ignoring commands to drop the knives.

The officers subdued the suspect with a Taser, police said. He was transported to Huntington Hospital.

Detectives charged the man, 21-year-old Kevin Jaime of Huntington Station, with menacing a police officer and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Attorney information for the defendant was not available. He was scheduled to be arraigned at a later date.
