Man suing Auburn police, Cayuga County DA arrested on felony weapon charge

An Auburn man turned himself in Thursday on a charge of threatening someone with a butcher knife, the Auburn Police Department said.

Tyrone Tyreek Matthews, 41, of Auburn was arrested on an arrest warrant and charged with third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a class D felony, and second-degree menacing, a class A misdemeanor.

The APD said the victim called Sept. 22, saying Matthews was outside her residence carrying the weapon. He was not there by the time police arrived.

After a warrant for his arrest was issued, Matthews, formerly of Rochester, turned himself in to Auburn City Court Thursday afternoon, when he was arraigned and remanded to the Cayuga County Jail in lieu of $2,500 cash or $5,000 bond. His next day in court is Oct. 18.
