Local Man Arrested After Barricading Himself

DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. -- Nick Kuzmenko, 50, of Dobbs Ferry, was arrested on July 24 after allegedly barricading himself into the third floor of a house on Devoe Street. Reportedly, a resident reported a domestic dispute just before 7 p.m. and when police showed up, Kuzmenko, who had violated an order of protection by being at the residence, went upstairs to the third floor and barricaded himself inside a room.

The Dobbs Ferry police called in Greenburgh SWAT along with Ardsley police for assistance. Shortly after 9 p.m. Greenburgh SWAT entered into the room and took custody of Kuzmenko without incident. Kuzmenko was charged with two counts of criminal contempt, both E felonies, one count of resisting arrest, one count of obstruction government administration and one count of criminal mischief in the third degree, which is also an E felony. He was remanded to county jail and is due in court on July 28.
