Riverhead Town police were called to the scene of a domestic incident around 2 p.m. Thursday on Daly Drive, where a man was allegedly holding someone at knifepoint. 

Chief David Hegermiller said the man eventually exited the house on his own and was being taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation. He added that it was likely the man’s mother would press charges against him.

No arrest had been made as of 11 p.m., but the investigation is ongoing, according to a police press release.

Police said a search warrant led to the removal of numerous knives, swords and weaponry that could be classified under the New York State Penal Law.
