Rochester man arrested after allegedly threatening local Army recruiters

A Rochester man is in police custody for allegedly making threats to a group of military recruiters.

Police were called to the Army Recruiting Station at Barlow Plaza around 8:20 p.m. Tuesday for a report that a man had approached the recruiters and made a throat-slitting motion. According to police, the suspect also threatened to harm prospective soldiers who come to the station.

The group left the scene without incident. Authorities say one of the recruiters suffered an ankle injury earlier in the day during a training exercise and needed medical assistance.

Police were able to use surveillance video from a nearby liquor store to identify the suspect as 34-year-old Gabriel Majak. He was located and arrested Wednesday afternoon at a residence in the 700 block of 6th Street SE.

Majak faces a felony charge for making terroristic threats.
