YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A 50-year-old Dumont man who was critically stabbed in a fight three years ago briefly held police at bay last night before surrendering on assault and weapons charges.

Michael Andrew King was being held on $12,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail.

Local police summoned the Bergen County SWAT Team negotiators, who removed King an hour or so after he barricaded himself in his New Milford Avenue home before midnight last night.

King was stabbed in the neck and abdomen by his ex-girlfriend’s 17-year-old son in September 2011 after he refused to leave their Paramus house, authorities said at the time.
