Deputies: Lyons man hit, choked woman during domestic incident

The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of a Lyons man following a domestic incident on Lawrence Street on July 11th.

Deputies say Leonard Burden, 59, was arrested after being involved in a physical altercation with his female roommate.


Burden allegedly hit the female in the face several times, causing a cut on her lip, and breaking her glasses. He’s also accused of putting his hands around the victim’s neck, which obstructed her breathing and left marks.

He was arrested for criminal mischief, criminal obstruction of breathing, and harassment.

He was transported to the Wayne County Jail for arraignment and is scheduled to appear in Lyons Town Court at a later date to answer the charges.
