Carthage and Watertown police made arrests Monday in unrelated incidents involving men who allegedly returned to threaten women they had previously harassed.
Kenneth L.E. Travis, 23, of 442 S. James St., Carthage, is jailed under $1,000 bail after being charged by Carthage police with criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation, and second-degree counts of criminal trespass and harassment.
Jordan T. Turner, 25, of 73 Public Square, Apt. 2, was detained by city police on charges of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon, second-degree menacing and fourth-degree criminal mischief.
Mr. Travis was sent to the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building by Village Justice S. Lucille Shettleton after being charged in incidents late Sunday and again Monday morning at the residence of Samantha M. DeLong, 23, of 938 Alexandria St., Carthage. Village police alleged that Sunday night, he punched her in the face and choked her. She did not require hospital treatment, police said.
He returned to the residence shortly after 3 a.m. Monday and entered and remained in the dwelling despite Ms. DeLongs repeated requests that he leave, police said. He was arrested at 8:30 a.m. Monday at his home.
Mr. Travis was convicted of second-degree criminal contempt in Jefferson County Court in February 2009 for violating an order of protection held by Ms. DeLong.
City police allege that Mr. Turner pointed a handgun at Alisha M. Kiblin, 20, of 73 Public Square, Apt. 1, the morning of Nov. 25 and threatened to use the gun. He also broke a glass picture and several Christmas ornaments, police said.
Mr. Turner was convicted of second-degree criminal contempt in April for violating Miss Kiblins order of protection. He also has a conviction in October 2011 for fifth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance, also in Jefferson County Court.
He was arrested at noon Monday at his apartment and was due for arraignment Tuesday in City Court.
