Dispute Arrest, Town of Junius

Seneca County Sheriff Tim Thompson reports that on 04/02/24 at around 0022 Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Christopher C, Pagano, age 26, of Seneca Falls NY on Harassment in the 2nd Degree, three counts of Criminal Mischief in the 4th Degree and two counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child.

The arrest stems from an incident in which Deputies were called to a possible dispute that had occurred in a moving vehicle in the Town of Junius. Deputies were able to locate the vehicle which had pulled over at a residence. After a subsequent investigation on scene, it was determined that Pagano allegedly struck another person breaking their glasses in the process. When the other party attempted to call 911 Pagano allegedly took the phone preventing the 911 call and broke the cell phone. This incident occurred while in the presence of two children.

Pagano was taken into custody and transported to the Seneca County Correctional Facility to await arraignment. An Order of Protection was requested on behalf of the victim.
