LOCKPORT – A female bartender at Lock 34 bar told city police she feared for her safety Sunday when a man pulled out a knife inside the bar.

John W. Walsh, 29, of Washburn Street, was removed from the bar, at 80 Main St., about 2:30 a.m. and charged with second-degree menacing, police said.

The bartender told officers Walsh pulled out the knife and slid it across the bar. She told police she was afraid for her safety because she wasn’t sure what Walsh was going to do with the knife.
