CORTLAND, NY (WIVT/WBGH) – On Friday, January 20th, Cortland Police responded to a disturbance at 37 Madison Street in the city.

According to police, Tristen Libbey was involved in an argument with an adult female when he displayed a large kitchen knife and threatened to kill the woman with it.

Libbey was later located at 37 Madison Street and arrested.

He has been charged with the following:

Following that arrest, Libbey was released on appearance tickets.

He was also released following his second arrest and is set to appear in Cortland City Court at a later date.
