ASSAULT - MASSENA - Village police charged Joshua J. Henderson, 24, of 273 East Orvis St., Massena, with third-degree assault, fourth-degree criminal mischief and criminal possession of a noxious material at 12:08 a.m. Sunday on East Orvis Street. He was arraigned by Massena Village Justice Eric J. Gustafson and sent to the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility with bail set at $10,000 cash or $20,000 bond.
Police said the charges stemmed from a dispute with his former paramour, Alanna Cruz, on May 24. They said Henderson allegedly raised a closed fist before he was pushed away by Ms. Cruz. He then allegedly pepper sprayed her. When Ms. Cruz attempted to file a complaint with police, Henderson reportedly broke her phone.
