ANOTHER CVP SCOOP: A Hasbrouck Heights custom concrete contractor was freed on $20,000 bail after being arrested early this morning on charges that he threatened his neighbor with a machete.
It’s unclear what the two men who share a two-family MacArthur Avenue house were arguing about.
“It became slightly physical,” at which point 57-year-old Jeffrey S. Grosfeld “went to the rear of the home and retrieved a machete,” Detective Sgt. Michael Colaneri Jr. told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .
“He then walked to the front in a threatening manner with it over his head, yelling that he’s been to jail and will go back,” Colaneri said.
The 6-foot-2-inch, 268-pound Grosfeld then dropped the machete there — exactly where police later found it after being called by the 35-year-old neighbor.
Records show Grosfeld spent 18 days in the Bergen County Jail in 2012 for driving while on the suspended/revoked list out of Ho-Ho-Kus.
Hasbrouck Heights police charged him today with possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.
