A Dundee man has been arrested and charged with assault following a domestic incident in the Town of Barrington on Sunday morning.
According to the Yates County Sheriff’s Office, 50-year old Shawn Martz was arrested at 1:34 a.m. after deputies responded to a 911 call reporting sounds of domestic violence at a home in the town.
An investigation revealed that a verbal argument between Martz and the resident of the home had stemmed from a previous physical altercation in which Martz had injured the resident.
Martz was arrested and taken to Yates County Jail, where he was arraigned on an assault charge.
The incident is still under investigation, and authorities are urging anyone who may have witnessed the incident or has information about it to come forward.
