Wildwood Crest, New Jersey, man charged with threatening his family


Wildwood Crest cops say an 18-year-old man is facing charges after he allegedly threatened family members late Monday night.

The scene unfolded just after 11:45 p.m. in the 100 east block of Orchid Avenue, according to the Wildwood Crest Police Department, when officers were called to a home for a disturbance report.

There, an officer entered the house and found Kevin Castro-Gonzalez in a hallway allegedly holding a knife.

As other officers entered the house, Castro-Gonzalez dropped the knife but engaged in a brief struggle with officers before being taken into custody. After further investigation, it was learned that Castro-Gonzalez had made threats to family members at the residence before police arrived.

Castro-Gonzalez was charged with two counts of threatening terrorism, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, endangering the welfare of children, resisting arrest, aggravated assault against law enforcement and illegal possession of weapons.

Castro-Gonzalez was being held at the Cape May County Correctional Facility pending a detention hearing.

The public is reminded that charges are charges and everyone is considered innocent until proven guilty in court.
