• A Bridgehampton man is being held at the Suffolk County jail in Riverside on assault and menacing charges following his arrest on Saturday morning.
Gregorio Colin-Martinez, who is 21, allegedly cut a man's hand with a knife at a residence on Muir Boulevard in East Hampton on Saturday at about 5:50 a.m.
According to police, they were called to the house for a disturbance after Colin-Martinez held a masonry knife against the victim's throat while making demands. The victim attempted to flee, but the defendant grabbed him and "sliced" his right hand, police said. Colin-Martinez then ran from the house towards Springs Fireplace Road.
About five minutes later, police were patrolling the area, near Queens Lane, when the defendant flagged them down, saying that he couldn't find his Ford Mustang. He directed the officer back to the Muir Boulevard address — his vehicle was parked in the driveway.
The victim told police what had transpired between them and Colin-Martinez was taken into custody at 6:02 a.m. He was charged with second-degree assault, a felony, and second-degree menacing, and criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth-degree, both misdemeanors.
East Hampton Town Justice Lisa R. Rana arraigned him later that morning, setting bail at $2,000 cash or $5,000 bond. He was turned over to the Suffolk County Sheriff's office and is due back in court on Wednesday.
The victim reportedly denied medical treatment for his hand.
