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.
