RIDGEWOOD — A 55-year-old village man is accused of pulling a knife on two police officers and cutting them Tuesday afternoon after he agreed to be taken to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation, authorities said.
James Brown is being held at the Bergen Regional Medical Center in lieu of $50,000 bail, Ridgewood police Detective Chris McDowell said.
A maintenance worker at Brown’s Chestnut Street home called police around 2 p.m. after a dispute with Brown, McDowell said. Officers determined Brown needed to be taken to the hospital and he cooperated with them at first.
Then he pulled out a knife about the size of a Swiss Army knife, McDowell said. They struggled and subdued him after being cut.
