Man Charged After Threatening Manahawkin Costco Workers: Police

MANAHAWKIN, NJ — Days after a viral video showed a man berating and threatening Costco employees, the customers faces several charges. William Commauf was charged with terroristic threats, harassment and disorderly conduct for the July 29 incident.

The video showed a man yelling at a cashier, saying things such as “shut your mouth, ring my stuff up” and “your manager isn’t tough enough to fight me.” The clip went locally viral last week and seems to have been since removed from social media.

Stafford police began investigation into the video Monday and issued a warrant Wednesday for the arrest of Commauf, 48, of Barnegat. Officials took him to the Ocean County Jail.

Police thanked the public for assisting in the investigation.
