Just a week after being sentenced to five years probation, a man resumed his recent history of attacks on a city woman, according to Watertown police.

Cheyenne J. Lajoie, 33, of 25533 Ridge Road, was arrested Wednesday night on charges of first-degreee criminal contempt, a felony, and harassment.

Police allege that shortly before 10 p.m. Tuesday, Mr. Lajoie confronted Heather L. Collins Renfrew at 329 High St., and grabbed her by the coat and shoved her. The alleged actions violated a protection order issued in Jefferson County Court.

He was sentenced on May 1 to probation after being convicted of felony criminal contempt for pushing and choking her. The conviction came after he had arrests on Oct. 15, Nov. 10, Dec. 1, Jan. 3 and Feb. 18, all in incidents involving Ms. Renfrew. With all those arrests he compiled at least seven charges, including two counts each of contempt and third-degree assault, and single counts of obstructing breathing and blood circulation, criminal mischief and harassment.

Watertown City Judge Eugene R. Renzi set bail Thursday at $5,000, placing him in the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building.
