WEST HEMPSTEAD - A West Hempstead man is under arrest after he allegedly held a knife to his landlord's throat yesterday.

Police say 23-year-old Nicholas Reilly, of West Hempstead, showed up at his landlord's home at around noon. They say when the 47-year-old victim answered the door, Reilly forced her into the kitchen, held a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her.

Reilly took off after the attack but investigators say he surrendered to police last night.
