CRIMINAL MISCHIEF - MASSENA - Village police charged Robert J. Larock, 28, of 118 Jefferson Ave., Massena, with two counts of fourth-degree criminal mischief and four counts of endangering the welfare at 1:54 a.m. Thursday after responding to a domestic dispute complaint.
Police allege intentionally punched and broke the glass door at 118 Jefferson Ave, at 1:48 a.m. Thursday during a dispute with his wife, Bobbi Jo. He also pushed a chair into the fish tank during the argument.
The fish tank was cracked and water spilled out flooding the dining room along with shards of glass from the tank, police said. A two year old had reportedly been sleeping near the fish tank when it was broken.
Three other children - ages 12, 11 and 10 - were also in the residence when the domestic dispute took place.
Bobbi Jo Larock said Robert came back to the residence intoxicated, and she notes she had asked him to leave because he was being very loud.
Robert got mad so he pushed a kitchen chair and hit our fish tank causing it to break and spill on the floor, she said in her statement.
Robert came back asking , Why would you call the cops on me/ The more I talked the more agitated Robert got. I then told Robert to leave for good, to not come back, Ms. Larock added.
She said Robert then pushed the television to the ground and after she told her cousin to call the police he either punched or slammed the door very hard, causing glass to break.
Mr. Larock was arraigned by Massena Town Justice Gerald P. Sharlow and released under the supervision of the probation department. The court also signed a temporary order of protection directing Mr. Larock not to harass his wife or children with a stipulation that he also not become intoxicated.
