Man accused of throwing hatchet through Gloversville home window

GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Authorities say a man was arrested after they responded to a fight involving bats, hatchets and a wooden board.

Police say on Saturday November 28 at 9:45 p.m. Gloversville Officers were directed to the area of North Street and Temple Street for a report of a fight involving bats and hatchets.

Officers arrived and found a male, 25-year-old Christopher Carrobis holding a wooden board over his head, running toward the porch of 20 North Street, where people were still standing.

Officers say they ordered him to stop and drop the board, which he did.

He was detained and it was determined that Carrobis arrived at the home with the board and a hatchet. During an argument with a man there, witnesses say Carrobis threw the hatchet toward him.

The hatchet missed his intended target, but did fly into the living room where two young children were watching TV, nearly striking them. That is when the officers arrived.

After conducting all interviews and gathering all evidence, Carrobis was charged with Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the Third Degree, Reckless Endangerment in the First Degree, Attempted Assault in the Second Degree, Menacing in the Second Degree and Endangering the Welfare of a Child in two counts.

Police say Carrobis was arraigned in Gloversville City Court and remanded to the Fulton County Correctional Facility in lieu of bail.
