Far Rockaway Machete Chase

Michael Glasper, 38, a Mott Avenue resident, was arrested last week for allegedly wielding a machete down Cornaga Avenue near Hartman Lane, while chasing after another man, at around 7:00 p.m. on July 31, according to police.

It is unknown why the victim was chased with the knife, but police arrested Glasper the following day and recovered the machete, which was identified by the victim. He was released without bail and is being charged with menacing and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a spokesperson for District Attorney Richard Brown said.
