Borough Officers Jason Colombo and Scott Tronziger, responding to the Daily Deli last night, grabbed two men, while their colleagues from East Rutherford grabbed a third, Carlstadt Police Chief Thomas Nielsen said this morning.

Vincente-Gonzalez, 22, of East Rutherford, “became irate and began to argue with the store employees,” at which point they were asked to leave, he said.
As one of the workers followed to make sure they were gone, Vincente-Gonzalez pulled “produced a folding knife from his pants pocket, opened the blade and held the blade up to the employee’s torso,” Nielsen said.
Vincente-Gonzalez charged with two counts each of aggravated assault and illegal weapons possession.
