PLATTSBURGH — A Plattsburgh man was charged with five felony counts after he tried to break into a woman’s home, police said.
Patrick Jasiewicz, 43, of Plattsburgh was charged with two counts of second-degree assault relating to a police officer, fourth-degree criminal mischief, first-degree criminal contempt and first-degree burglary, all felonies, Plattsburgh City Police said.
Jasiewicz was also charged with resisting arrest, a misdemeanor, and unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation.
He was also wanted on a warrant charging him with second-degree criminal contempt, a misdemeanor, in connection with a previous incident, police said.
On Jan. 24, he attempted to break into a residence on Miller Street in Plattsburgh and the woman inside the home was holding the door shut to keep him from gaining entry, police said.
When officers arrived and tried to arrest him, Jasiewicz began fighting with them, police said.
Neither the woman in the home or the officers were injured, police said.
He was arraigned in Plattsburgh City Court, police said.
Jasiewicz was sent to Clinton County Jail and bail was set for only some of his charges so he must remain in custody, according to the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department.
