Villager Arrested After Threatening to Kill Man, Police Say

An 18-year-old villager told a Glen Rock mother he was going to kill her son, according to Glen Rock police.

A Ridgewood man was arrested and charged with making terroristic threats after allegedly threatening to kill a man last Thursday, according to police.

Cpt. Jonathan Miller said Daniel Gubb, 18, went to the Norwood Ave. home of a former friend in Glen Rock and yelled to the ex-friend's mother that he was going to track her son down and kill him.

The mother, according to Miller, called police with a description of the vehicle and description of the suspect. Gubb was brought to headquarters and was processed and released, Miller said.

Miller said he did not know what events led Gubb to allegedly make such statements to the mother. Gubb did not immediately return a message seeking comment left Tuesday night.

Well I guess "innocent until proven guilty" is no longer applicable once it hits the internet.

We all need to teach our kids to think before you act or open your mouth! This kid is probably not an idiot or a bad kid........but he sure comes across that way now!

IMO... Our world has been driven to the point that we have become overly sensitive..and for a good reason, but I think it may have been blown a wee bit out of proportion.

As a mother, I would have asked the most important question..."what did MY son do to warrent this young man's behavior that he would have to ring my door bell to look for my child"... Sounds like her son took something from Mr. Gubb and the mother knows it!!! ... the ole saying goes, "the apple does not fall far from the tree unless it is on a hill"... Lady stay out of young people's business! You know your son did something wrong too!

Probably won't get convicted, as it's just his word vs hers. Give him his day in court.

This kid went to my school and dropped out after a semester. He got into fights almost every weekend and was a know drug dealer. He is a degenerate and needs to be institutionalized for his and the well-being of the community.
