Crystal N. Rebensky

GRANBY — A Phoenix woman was sent to the county jail after allegedly brandishing a butcher knife on Friday while threatening other residents in her home, according to the Oswego County Sheriff’s Department.

Crystal N. Rebensky, 37, of 178 Pendergast Rd., Phoenix, was charged with three counts of second-degree menacing and endangering the welfare of a child following an alleged domestic dispute in the town of Granby. Sheriff’s deputies said the domestic dispute started out over breakfast food but swiftly grew into a dangerous situation.

According to officials, Rebensky woke up in her home on Pendergast Road Friday while another member of the household was cooking pancakes in the kitchen. Rebensky allegedly entered the kitchen, “yelling and cussing,” officials said, and she displayed a butcher knife and threatened other individuals in the home.

Rebensky was arrested and charged at 1:53 p.m. Friday afternoon. She was later arraigned at the town of Granby courthouse. In lieu of $1,000 cash or $2,500 bond, Rebensky was remanded to the Oswego County  Correctional Facility where she awaits her return court date on Nov. 18.
