MASSENA -- Village police say a Massena man is charged with six counts, including two felonies, after allegedly breaking into the home of a woman whom a court order restricts him from going near.

William J. Davis, 40, of Douglas Road, Massena was charged with second-degree burglary and first-degree criminal contempt, both felonies, at 6:08 a.m. Sunday at a residence on East Orvis Street. He was also charged with two counts of fourth-degree criminal mischief and single counts of resisting arrest and unlawful imprisonment, all misdemeanors, police said.

Police said that morning received a call that an intoxicated Davis broke a door to get into the apartment of the alleged victim, who has an order of protection against him.

He allegedly fought with officers attempting to place him under arrest, police said.

Davis was arraigned in Massena court by judge Patrick Serguson and remanded to the St. Lawrence County jail, Canton, in lieu of $1,000 bail or $2,000 bond, police said.
