Felony charge for threats to kill

An Anoka resident faces a felony charge in Anoka County District Court for allegedly threatening to kill two other men while brandishing a screwdriver.

Anthony Matthew Koebensky, 43, 1526 Sunny Way Court, will be back in court Nov. 15 on a terroristic threats charge.

He posted $5,000 bail Oct. 16. The court issued a no contact order.

The late morning of Oct. 12, Anoka Police responded to an apartment building on Ferry Street, where two men had another male, later identified as Koebensky pinned to the ground.

According to the complaint, one of the men, the apartment building landlord, was changing the locks on Koebensky’s unit with the help of the other man.

The complaint alleges that when the men pulled out the tools to change the locks, Koebensky grabbed a screwdriver, threatened to kill the men and chased the landlord round the apartment with the screwdriver in his hand.

The two men allegedly were eventually able to subdue Koebensky and hold him until police arrived.
