Monticello man arrested for attacking ex-girlfriend and another man


MONTICELLO – A Monticello man was arrested on Saturday on charges of burglary, assault, criminal mischief, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration.

Monticello Police responded to a report of a burglary with two assault victims at a residence on Hillside Avenue at 3 a.m. on Saturday.

A 32-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman told officers that Jason Carnell, 45, kicked in the front door and physically assaulted them. Carnell has previously been in a relationship with the woman. She was able to run out of the residence, but Carnell ran after her and attempted to drag her to his parked car. She was able to break free and call 911.

When the police arrived, Carnell was seen running from the scene, but was located a short time later on West Broadway. When he was told that he was under arrest, he struggled with village and State Police officers and tried to pull away. Monticello Police Sgt. Jason Corley then deployed a Taser to subdue Carnell, who was taken into custody.

Both victims were transported by ambulance to Catskill Regional Medical Center where the woman was treated for facial injuries and the male was treated for a broken nose and a laceration on the back of his head.

Carnell was arraigned sent to the Sullivan County Jail without bail pending a future court appearance.
