On May 7, 2020, troopers from the Ellenville barracks arrested Richard Ronda, age 41 and Julie Ronda, age 36, both from Accord for Assault 3rd degree, Criminal Mischief 4th degree, Petit Larceny all misdemeanors, and Harassment 2nd degree, a violation. Investigation revealed that both Richard Ronda and Julie Ronda went to a home in Accord and got into a verbal altercation with the homeowner over a previous incident. The argument then turned physical with the victim being struck several times in the face and head by both Richard and Julie Ronda. The victim’s cell phone was then taken so that she could not call 911. The victim was able to contact 911 using a neighbors phone. The arriving troopers contacted Kerhonkson rescue who rendered medical attention to the victim. Troopers then went to the Ronda’s residence and took them into custody without incident. Both defendants were arraigned via Skype and were Released on their Own Recognizance. They both have a return date to the Town of Rochester Court on July 1, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. An Order of Protection was issued on behalf of the victim.
