Police say a man who was arrested after assaulting a teenage grocery store worker in Steuben County has been taken into custody a second time after a separate incident.
The most recent incident involved a school bus filled with middle school children.
Police were called to Walnut Street and Dennison Parkway in Corning on Wednesday for reports of a man who entered a business and stole merchandise.
After leaving, Emmett Kane, 28, attacked a nearby school bus, causing $5,000 worth of damage.
Police say Kane never made an attempt to get on the bus, and the driver was able to get away from the scene, but a brick was through through the windshield of a passing vehicle.
He was eventually confronted by police. Kane verbally challenged officers and physically assaulted one of them. That officer had to be treated at a local hospital.
Kane has been charged with felony assault and criminal mischief. He was charged with assault and criminal mischief, as well as endangering the welfare of a child after the incidents on Monday.
Kane was held pending arraignment following the second incident.
