On Thursday at approximately 5:37 p.m., Secaucus police responded to the parking lot of Hudson Wines Co., located at 865 Roosevelt Ave., on a report of a man who had allegedly threatened an employee with a knife, according to Police Chief Dennis Miller.

During the investigation, the police arrested Alfred Viggiano, 67, of Secaucus.

He was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon (small handled axe), unlawful possession of a weapon (pocket knife), possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, terroristic threats, and simple assault.

Just 10 minutes or so prior to that incident, Secaucus police responded to Green Valley Court on a report of harassment.

An investigation was conducted and Viggiano was further charged with bias intimidation
and harassment. Viggiano was served his complaint warrant for both incidents and was subsequently transported to the Hudson County Jail, authorities said.
