A “large officer presence” was called to the corner of South Cayuga and East Clinton streets around 8:40 a.m. after a bicyclist and person operating a vehicle began arguing, allegedly with an axe, Officer Jamie Williamson, of the Ithaca Police Department said.

He said no axe was found at the scene.

Williamson said the two people did not know each other and it is unclear what they were arguing about.

Neither person wanted to press charges against the other and the scene was cleared within about 20 minutes.
