Joshua A. Jones, a 30-year-old resident of Waterloo, was arrested early Saturday morning by the Seneca Falls Police Department following a disturbance at a local apartment complex. Police responded to reports of a man breaking a window and aggressively banging on a door around 12:47 a.m. Upon arrival, officers identified Jones near the scene, who matched the description provided and was acting hostile towards the police.


Jones was detained after he refused to provide identification and obstructed the ongoing investigation. It was later discovered that the damaged property belonged to the victim. Jones faced charges including third-degree criminal mischief, a Class E felony under New York State Domestic Violence Laws, and second-degree obstruction of governmental administration.

Additionally, Jones was charged with three counts of second-degree harassment for threatening physical harm to law enforcement officers while in custody. He was arraigned and taken to Seneca County Jail, where an order of protection was requested for the victim.
