ADAMS — Two Adams residents were arrested Tuesday after they allegedly threatened a Lacona man with a rifle.

State police charged Shawn M. Switzer Sr., 42, and Brittain J. Switzer, 20, both of 11240 County Route 77, with one count each of second-degree menacing. It is alleged that they possessed a 30-30 caliber Marlin rifle, and displayed it in a threatening manner toward David Barker, of Lacona, causing him to fear serious physical injury or death.

According to police, Mr. Barker had gone to the Switzer residence to discuss a debt owed to him by Shawn Switzer. No injuries were reported.

Both Switzers were issued appearance tickets for Town Court.
