KILLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - A Vermont man pleaded not guilty on Monday to charges that he threatened to attack multiple people with an ax.
Vermont State Police say they responded to a campsite in Killington Saturday around 11:30 p.m.
One of the victims told troopers a man hit their car with an ax and then threatened to cut people’s heads off.
Ralph Schneider, 61, of Mendon, was identified as the man behind the alleged threats.
Monday, a judge ordered Schneider held without bail because of the nature of the charges and because Schneider doesn’t have stable housing.
He faces multiple counts of aggravated assault and criminal threatening.
