Yorkshire man arrested for assault
On February 1, 2020, SP Machias Troopers arrested Leslie A. Spencer, 70, of Yorkshire, NY for Assault 1st Degree.
Troopers investigating a report of an assault at a residence on State Route 16 in the town of Yorkshire determined Spencer had struck another party with a softball bat.
Spencer was arrested and arraigned in Yorkshire Town Court, where he was remanded to the Cattaraugus County Jail in lieu of $15,000 bail or $25,000 bond. He is due to reappear in that court later this month.
