PERKINS TWP.

A Perkins Township man chased a repo man and then approached him with an ax Tuesday night, police said.

Yudah Amit, 58, 600 block W. Strub Road, was charged with criminal damaging and aggravated menacing. Amit pleaded not guilty to both charges Wednesday in Sandusky Municipal Court. He is scheduled to appear for trial Nov. 18.

Martin D. Jay, 25, told police he went to Amit's home to look for a pickup truck for MD Recovery. Amit became upset with Jay, following him back to his truck and damaging a side mirror. Amit then went to get an ax and again approached Jay before police arrived.

Officers ordered Jay out his truck at gunpoint when they arrived on the scene. Police also ordered Amit and Amit's son to the ground at gunpoint before taking Amit into custody.
