Cushing woman accused of knife threat in Rockland

By Stephen Betts, BDN Staff

ROCKLAND, Maine — A 19-year-old Cushing woman was arrested Friday night after allegedly threatening a group of people with a knife.

Nikki L. Gray was arrested and charged with criminal threatening, domestic violence assault and disorderly conduct. She was taken to the Knox County Jail.

According to an affidavit filed in Rockland District Court by Officer Andrew Crook, police responded to a call at the Circle K convenience store. A man reportedly was pumping gas while his family sat inside the vehicle about 10 p.m. when two young men and a young woman walking by across the street shouted at him.

A confrontation ensued when one of the young men crossed the street. Eventually, Gray pulled out a knife and charged at the man who had been pumping gas.

The three young people then left but were tracked down by another officer near Rockland Savings Bank.

Gray was visibly intoxicated, Sgt. Anthony Camporiale said in his report filed with the court. While the officer was questioning her about the incident, one of the young men called the officer a derogatory name. Gray then yelled at the young man and told him not to be disrespectful to the officer before she slapped the young man.

She then was arrested.

Judge Patricia Worth set bail at $2,500 cash for Gray at her initial appearance in Rockland District Court on Wednesday afternoon.
