State Police arrested an Ithaca man around 4:00 Saturday (April 27) evening after a verbal altercation that turned violent at the West Hill Circle Apartments.
Troopers say 23-year old Denzel Daniels was initially in a heated argument with another resident outside of the building. He later started to repeatedly bang on the door before climbing up the balcony, forcing his way into the residence through a sliding glass door.
The victim says Daniels then took the phone they were using to get help and a physical fight began immediately.
Eventually, help was able to arrive and Daniels was arrested to appear in Ithaca Court May 8.
No serious injuries were reported. An order of protection was issued to the victim.
