A man was arrested after walking into a Beacon barbershop and threatening to shoot all the employees and customers while waving a handgun.

Kyle-Ray Stuyvesant, 28, was charged with felony criminal possession and use of a weapon and menacing, said Detective Lt. Louis Lucato.

The city of Beacon Police received a call on Friday, Oct. 27, for multiple subjects fighting in the roadway on Main St., said Lucato.

After arriving, officers determined that Stuyvesant, who is homeless, had entered the barbershop and threatened to shoot all the employees and customers inside while brandishing a handgun, Lucato said.

Stuyvesant ran out of the business after a passerby witnessed the incident, he said.

Employees chased after Stuyvesant and a fight ensued in the roadway where employees detained him until police arrived.

Police searched the area and found a fully loaded 9mm auto handgun, Lucato said.

Stuyvesant was processed and arraigned at Beacon City Court. He is being held at the Dutchess County Jail on $50,000 cash/$100,000 bond with additional charges pending.
