A man will stand trial on charges he threatened people with an ax in Frick Park, a district judge decided Monday.

Judge Anthony Ceoffe dismissed charges of aggravated assault and ethnic intimidation, but ordered Frederic Park, 39, to trial on recklessly endangering another person and simple assault during a preliminary hearing at Pittsburgh Municipal Court. Prosecutors withdrew an aggravated assault charge.

Two people told Pittsburgh police Park swung an ax at them during separate incidents in Frick on June 22. No one was hurt. Police said Park had been living in Frick.

Ceoffe changed Park's bail to a nonmonetary bond on the conditions that he be released to the Department of Human Service's Justice Related Support Services, which helps people with mental illness released from the county jail, and that he does not go near Frick.
