A Wantagh man is accused of threatening his neighbors with a shotgun in a bizarre incident in front of their homes Monday afternoon.

Police say Joseph Magistro, 33, became enraged with his neighbors on Bayview Avenue as part of an ongoing dispute.

They say he threw barbells into the windows of their home, shattering the glass.

Magistro also allegedly threatened to shoot them while holding a shotgun.

He is expected to face a judge Tuesday on charges including menacing, aggravated harassment, weapons possession and trespassing.

Magistro's neighbors were not injured.
