Exclusive: Councilman threatened because of vote, he says

Posted: Updated:

 

In an exclusive interview with ABC 33/40, Fairfield City Councilman James Reasor says three armed men barged into his barbershop Thursday threatening him and a customer. 

The councilman believes he was attacked out of political retaliation. Reasor did not vote for Elise Mclin, who was vying for a city council seat vacated by former Councilman Primus Mack. 

Mack was found guilty earlier this year of child enticement and second degree sexual abuse charges. 

"The threats that they laid out on my daughter and on my son and the rest of my family is very frightening, disturbing, appalling," said Reasor. 

Councilman Reasor said he filed a police report with the Fairfield police department.  The department refused to release any information until Monday. 

We reached out to Elise Mclin regarding the matter. She told ABC 33/40's Larry Miller by phone that she was not aware of the incident and saddened by the report. 

Reasor plans to move forward and seek justice in the courtroom. 

Count on us for any updates when they become available.
