WEST SENECA, N.Y. (WKBW) - A West Seneca man pleaded guilty to menacing charges Tuesday for threatening patrons of the Seneca Street Planet Fitness with a knife back in January.

Prosecutors say on January 16th, 24-year-old Louis Doll walked into the gym and began threatening patrons while wielding a knife.

Police arrived at the scene, where Doll decided to lunge at an officer, who quickly drew his Taser with his other hand and subdued Doll.

Doll was charged with Second Degree Menacing, as well as Attempted Menacing of a Police Officer.

The entire incident occurred while Doll was on parole for an Attempted Robbery conviction from 2008.

After serving the remainder of his parole in state prison, Doll faces another four years behind bars.

He will be sentenced on May 15th.
