Police Log: May 8, 2014 — Felony arrest

PLATTSBURGH — A Vermont man was charged March 25 with conspiracy in connection with a Dec. 2013 gang assault, police said.

In December 2013, Joseph Strong, 33, lured a man to an apartment on Montcalm Avenue and locked the door so three other men could  beat the victim with a wooden rod, Plattsburgh City Police said.

Strong had fled the area following the crime, police said.

He was charged with fourth-degree conspiracy, a felony.

Strong was arraigned and taken to Clinton County Jail where he remained Wednesday in lieu of $50,000 cash or $10,000 bond, according to the Clinton County Sheriff’s Department.
