On Saturday April 12th at 11:50pm Tyngsborough Police Officers responded to a Long Pond Road residence for a reported unwanted person.  While responding officers were advised that a second caller had reported that there may be a firearm involved.

Upon arrival officers found a 66 year old female victim who reported that she had woken up to find that her son, who was not invited in her home, was in her bedroom sitting on a chair.  She immediately told him to leave however he refused and pulled out what the victim described as a large hunting knife and told her he was going to kill her.   After a brief confrontation with the victim, this subject fled prior to police arriving; a short time later Tyngsborough officers located this subject in Dracut just over the Tyngsborough town line.

The Dracut Police Department k-9 unit and State Police arrived to assist Tyngsborough officers; they subsequently searched for the knife used in the assault however it was not located.
