Anoka man pleads guilty to making threats with screwdriver

An Anoka resident, accused of threatening two other men while brandishing a screwdriver, has pleaded guilty in Anoka County District Court to a felony charge.

Anthony Matthew Koebensky, 44, entered a guilty plea Oct. 7 to a terroristic threats count and will be sentenced Oct. 18. A no contact order remains in effect.

The late morning of Oct. 12, 2012 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 states that when the men put 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 were eventually able to subdue Koebensky and hold him until police arrived.
