LIVONIA — A Rochester man was arrested after apparently becoming enraged and allegedly slicing up mattresses while his children slept nearby.
According to a press release from Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty, Seymour Miles, 41, was charged with criminal mischief in the Third Degree and four counts of Endangering the Welfare of a child from an incident back on March Third.
Allegedly, Miles became enraged over a separation between he and his soon to be ex-wife and after destroying two televisions and other furniture, left the scene in fury.
Sheriff Dougherty states that after several attempts by Deputies to locate Seymour Miles, a warrant was signed for his arrest by Livonia Town justice Robert Lemen. Miles was taken into custody on March 17 and was arraigned in front of Avon Town Justice Piampiano.
The Justice issued an Order of Protection ordering Seymour to stay away from the children and his estranged wife, and he was released on his own recognizance, even though Assistant District Attorney Justin Hill recommended bail be set at $1,500 cash of $3,000 secured bond.
