16-year-old male jailed after authorities respond to domestic dispute
WAYLAND — A 16-year-old Wayland male youth was arrested after an alleged attack on a New York State trooper with a knife, authorities said.
According to a report, Wayland-based State Police responded to a domestic dispute in the Village of Wayland on Sunday at approximately 1:11 p.m. Upon arrival at the residence, one of the participants in the dispute refused to drop a knife, and subsequently threw it at the trooper, striking him in the arm.
After a brief struggle, troopers arrested the teen, whose name was not released, and charged him with second-degree attempted assault, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, fourth-degree criminal mischief and resisting arrest, all misdemeanor charges.
The trooper sustained no injuries in the altercation, State Police said. It is alleged that during the domestic incident, the suspect damaged property inside the residence, possessed a deadly weapon, threw the knife at the trooper and actively resisted arrest.
The teen was arraigned in Village of Wayland Court by Justice Tom Recktenwald, and remanded to Steuben County Jail on $3,000 cash bail or $6,000 property bond. He is scheduled to reappear in Village of Wayland Court on Friday at 10 a.m.
