Debt Collector threatened with Butchers knife

Wednesday, August 15, 2012 - Posted by Philip Harvey

Two employees of a rent to own furnishing company went to a home in Manchester to collect a payment which was four days late. The debtor agreed to make the payment, but when advised he also had to pay a late fee, he retracted his offer and advised he would pay next month and closed the door.

The employees knocked on the door again, and when the debtor opened the door, he presented a butchers knife at the face of one of the employees and told them to leave. They left and phoned the police.

He was arrested on a criminal threatening charge. When in court, the debtor advised he was a disabled veteran with a borderline personality disorder, and was recently accepted into an in-patient treatment program at the Veterans Administration Hospital.
