MASSENA — Joseph R. McMahon, 21, of 29 Elm St., was arrested by village police Wednesday afternoon after allegedly fleeing from the scene of a domestic dispute on Park Avenue.

Mr. McMahon is accused of putting his hand over the mouth and throat of his girlfriend, Barbara Marshall, at 2:39 p.m. at her residence, shoving her on a bed and breaking her cellphone in the process.
