PLAINFIELD – A Rome man was arrested in the early morning hours after threatening to kill a Plainfield resident and breaking into her home in Otsego County’s Northwest Corner while her children were present.
Jason S. Tuttle, 31, was arrested after a call came into the Otsego County 911 reporting that Tuttle had allegedly broken a bedroom window and attempted to enter the home while the victim was inside with her three children. An investigation by the state troopers determined that earlier in the day, he had called and threatened to kill her.
Though he fled the scene, he was arrested later that day and charged with the felonies of attempted burglary, second degree, criminal mischief, third degree and the misdemeanors of menacing, second degree, aggravated harassment, second degree and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
Tuttle was arraigned in the town of Richfield court and was remanded to the Otsego County jail in lieu of $15,000 cash bail or $30,000 property bond. An order of protection was placed against Tuttle. His next court date in the Town of Plainsfield is pending.
