YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: Garfield police charged an 18-year-old city man with threatening a couple with a brick and a knife yesterday after one of the victims hailed a police officer working a traffic detail.

Yousef Nabil Rabah was being held on $25,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, charged with aggravated assault, making terroristic threats and two counts of weapons possession.

Officer David Coniglio was working a traffic post at Monroe Street and Pierre Avenue when a 28-year-old man came running down the street yelling around 3:15 p.m., Capt. Darren Sucorowski said this morning.

The man told Coniglio that the assailant threatened him and a woman he was with on Palisade Avenue with a brick and a knife, he said.

Officers and detectives flooded the area and within 10 minutes, Detective James Zangara and Officer Anthony Koptyra spotted Rabah, Sucorowski said. He was taken into custody by Officer Claire Follari.

No one was injured, the captain said.
