Sheriff: Romulus man charged after domestic incident, following hospital tip

Seneca County Sheriff Tim Luce reports the arrest of a 28-year-old Romulus man following a domestic incident that occurred on May 27th.

Luce says Timothy M. Patchen, 28, of Romulus was arrested on Tuesday, May 29th after a 911 call was made by Geneva General Hospital – who reported that a female arrived in the emergency room early Sunday morning with several injuries.

After further investigation it was alleged that the female and Patchen got into a physical altercation after returning home from a local establishment, according to Luce.

That’s when Patchen allegedly attacked the female, tackling her to the ground – and placing his knee on her chest so that she could not leave or move.

During the incident, Patchen also allegedly bit the female in the leg and took her phone while she attempted to call for help.

As result, he was charged with harassment, criminal mischief, and unlawful imprisonment.

Patchen was arraigned in Romulus Town Court and remanded to the Seneca County Correctional Facility in lieu of $500 cash bail or $1,000 secured bond.
