Investigation at the scene revealed Timothy A. Scott II, 29, of Central Square, had allegedly pushed, hit and choked a female victim until she lost consciousness in front of her two children.

He then took the victim’s phone to prevent her from contacting police.

Troopers and the State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation attempted to locate Scott to take him into custody for the pending charges pursuant to the domestic dispute.

Scott would not turn himself in or provide his location for several weeks.

Continued investigation revealed he had relocated to Vermont, and that he was also wanted on two outstanding warrants in Massena.

Investigators made contact with Scott, and he agreed to turn himself in to answer the charges.

Today (April 4), Scott turned himself in at SP Hastings.

He was taken into custody and charged with Criminal Obstruction of Breathing or Blood Circulation, Criminal Mischief in the 4th Degree, and Endangering the Welfare of a Child, all class “A” misdemeanors.

He was also charged with Harassment in the 2nd Degree, a violation.

He was arraigned in the Town of Hastings Court and remanded to the Oswego County Jail in lieu of $2,500 cash or $5,000 bond.

He is scheduled to return to the Town of Hastings Court on April 18 at 4 p.m.
