He was charged by Suffolk County Police with 18 counts of criminal possession of a weapon for possession of an assault weapon, a large-capacity ammunition feeding device, a silencer; and an ASP-baton.

An employee at the Summit School told police on Saturday that he received six messages on the school’s voicemail system from a former student a the school.

The former student caller was later identified as Csak.

The messages were accidentally erased, but the staff member who heard them told police he was concerned for the safety of the students and staff and questioned the well-being of the caller.

Clarkstown Police contacted Suffolk County Police with the information and asked them to check on Csak and that is when they found all of the weapons and arrested him.
