The Associated Press
Police say Meilech Schnitzler turned himself in on Wednesday and was arrested on charges of felony assault, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon. A woman who answered the phone at his home says he's not going to speak to anyone.
Rabbi Nuchem Rosenberg told The New York Times (http://nyti.ms/Rq838k) a man he recognized tossed the liquid in his face as he walked in Brooklyn's Williamsburg section on Tuesday.
Police say the two were involved in an "ongoing dispute."
Rosenberg runs a website that publicizes child sexual abuse victims in the Satmar Hasidic community.
