The Warren County Sheriff’s Office arrested Daniel J. Thompson, age 28, of River Street, Warrensburg and charged him with burglary first degree, a class B felony, and the misdemeanors of assault third degree, criminal mischief fourth degree, and obstruction of breathing.
On Saturday, Feb. 22 at about 12:25 a.m. Sheriff’s Officers responded to a reported assault that occurred at the North River Trailer Park, located at 4139 State Route 28 in Johnsburg. Arriving officers interviewed a female complainant, who reported when she returned home earlier in the evening, she found Thompson inside her residence. An argument ensued that escalated into a physical altercation between Thompson and the female victim. Thompson grabbed a phone from the female as she attempted to contact law enforcement, and threw it against a wall, rendering the device useless. He also grabbed the female by the throat and caused injury to the female. The female was able to exit the residence and sought aid from a neighbor who called police. The female complainant and Thompson are acquainted with one and other. The female was treated at Glens Falls Hospital for minor injuries and released.
Thompson was arraigned in Johnsburg Town Court and sent to the Warren County Correctional Facility in lieu of $30,000 cash bail or $60,000 bond.
