A man who threatened to kill his roommates in Winthrop with a machete is going to jail for 8 months.

20-year-old Nicholas Rolling was also sentenced last week to two years probation.

He pleaded guilty in August to criminal threatening and assault.

In January police got a 911 call from two people inside a house on Tappen Farm Road, saying they were being held hostage by Rolling.

Rolling believed the men had stolen his money.

He swung a machete at one and punched the other in the face.
