MENACING - POTSDAM - Village police charged Aaron M. Rist, 19, of Dover, N.H., with second-degree menacing at 4:28 p.m. Friday following stemming from an incident that reportedly occurred early Thursday morning and allegedly wasn’t reported to Potsdam Police by Clarkson officials for over 24 hours.

“The Potsdam Police Department was alerted by Clarkson University of an altercation which occurred on their campus on Thursday. After investigating the incident it was determined Rist became involved in an altercation with another CU student and had displayed a folding knife with a 3 inch blade,” according to blotter release from village police released Saturday morning.

Rist was released on an appearance ticket for Potsdam Village Court.

Potsdam Village Police Chief Kevin Bates was unavailable for comment on the incident Friday even though his department’s blotter release Friday morning had been critical of Clarkson’s handling of the incident.
