Police say a 38-year-old Henrietta man is facing an array of felony charges after multiple domestic incidents this year in Canandaigua.

Brandon Phelps was arrested last week for aggravated family offense, aggravated criminal contempt, and stalking related to an incident at a Beals Street address earlier this year.

During the original incident, which occurred in January, investigators found that Beals violated a court order by calling a victim and leaving threatening voicemails.

An arrest warrant for Phelps was executed at the same time for additional charges of aggravated family offense and aggravated criminal contempt for another incident that happened in December 2022.

As was the case in the January incident, Phelps is accused of leaving threatening voicemails.


The day after his arrest in Canandaigua last week, police say Phelps was arrested again for making even greater threats.

In the most-recent incident, Phelps is said to have threatened the victim with a baseball bat. When he was taken into custody, Phelps refused to comply and was charged with obstruction, as well as two additional counts of aggravated family offense and aggravated criminal contempt.

He was remanded to the Ontario County Jail.
