A Riverhead landlord has been accused of breaking into his renters’ apartment on Middle Road just after midnight Saturday and scratching the man with a 30-inch-long piece of metal, Riverhead Town police said.

Able Tsang, 56, now faces a felony burglary charge, according to a news release.

Police were called to the apartment about 12:20 a.m. after Mr. Tsang — who also lives at the house — forced his way past the apartment’s locked door, according to a news release.

Though Mr. Tsang allegedly struck his renter with the piece of metal, no injuries were reported and the renter said he didn’t need medical help, police said.
