According to police, at 11:09 p.m. Tuesday, officers responded to the 1100 block of Reading Avenue for a report of a man threatening to kill a woman with a knife. Officers arrived to locate the victim, who was uninjured. She said she was in the residence with Carrington when he became agitated and retrieved a knife from the kitchen. The victim said he threatened to kill her while she was holding her infant child. She was able to flee to a family member’s residence.
Carrington fled before officers arrived, police said. A warrant was issued for him, and Carrington turned himself in at the Public Safety Building shortly after 8 a.m. Wednesday. He was taken to the Atlantic County jail.
During the campaign, Carrington said he was a substance abuse counselor and was open about having been incarcerated. He said he wanted to make re-entry services for those released from prison a priority for the city.
