November 18, 2018

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — Police in New Hampshire say they’ve charged a Vermont man with threatening another person with a knife in a car.

They say Sean Joyal, of Derby Line, Vermont, faces additional charges including second-degree assault and simple assault.

Police were notified late Saturday afternoon of a domestic disturbance in a car.

Authorities believe the episode unfolded over several jurisdictions before the arrest was made in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

It’s unknown if Joyal has a lawyer. The 29-year-old is scheduled for a video arraignment on Monday in Rockingham County Superior Court.
