Thomas J. Chapman told police he had lived at Monicas home for approximately a year before he moved out two to three weeks ago. Carol has not handled my leaving well. Since I moved out, she has been acting deranged. Carol keeps showing up at my house and calling me hundreds of times after I told her that I wanted to move on with my life, he noted in his statement to police.
Chapman told police he had found Monica inside his Glenn Street apartment on the evening of Feb. 16. He said Monica had entered the residence without permission and he found her going through his bed. He charged Monica made repeatedly made sexually-toned comments to him, grabbed him in the groin twice and then three a punch at him. While she was being escorted out of the residence, she allegedly threatened to shoot Chapman.
Monica also reportedly called Chapmans phone well over 100 times between Feb. 16-18 and followed his vehicle around the village of Massena on multiple occasions over the holiday weekend.
Chapman told police he was concerned Monica might try to hurt him, his girlfriend or her family. I know that Carol has pistols and rifles in the house, and she had told me in the past that she knew how to use them because her and her husband used to go to the range, he said in his statement to police.
She was arraigned by Acting Massena Village Justice James M. Crandall and released under the supervision of the probation department.
