A Cincinnatus man was arrested on Friday (April 15) by Cortland Police after they say he threatened to choke an 18-year-old woman at a residence on North Church Street in the City of Cortland.
Police were called to the residence just before 10 p.m. and say 20-year-old Michael Maricle also tried taking away his victim’s phone to prevent her from calling the police. They also confirmed that the woman had a valid full stay away order of protection against Maricle.
He was arraigned and released the next morning, but less than 4 hours later, Maricle again violated the order of protection by repeatedly calling the same 18 year old woman on the telephone.
He was again arrested and will now reappear once again in City Court on April 24.
