SAUGERTIES – A 43-year-old Mt. Marion man has been arrested by Saugerties Police and charged with endangering the welfare of a child and attempted assault following an incident at a residence on South Road in the Saugerties hamlet of Mt. Marion.

Police were called to the location on February 9 for a report of a fight in progress. The investigation determined that Devon Pallas pushed the victim placing his hands against her face and then grabbed a wooden stool and held it above her head as if he was going to strike her with it.

During the dispute, the victim was clutching her three-year-old daughter in her arms.

Pallas was arraigned and released on his recognizance with a court order of protection issued on behalf of the victim.
