There were two children present at the time of the incident, and when one of them tried to intervene, they were also threatened by Rambharose.
Police responded after a third party contacted 911. Rambharose left the scene prior to the arrival of patrols and was ultimately located by Schenectady Police Department after being involved a motor vehicle accident.
Rambharose was processed at SP Fonda and arraigned in Amsterdam Town Court. He was released on his own recognizance and is due back in court on March 3, 2020.
