NORWICH – The Chenango County grand jury met Wednesday and handed up several criminal indictments including a case of a McDonough man who allegedly attacked a 21-year-old female and inappropriately solicited an 11-year-old girl.
At the proceedings, the District Attorney’s Office presents evidence against those they wish to prosecute and the jury decides if there is enough reasonable cause to charge a person.
• 31-year-old Andrew Jason Waterman of McDonough was indicted for second degree kidnapping, second degree assault, both felonies, and endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor.
Waterman allegedly attacked a 21-year-old woman in the parking lot behind the VFW near South Main and Silver Street in the City of Norwich at around 9 p.m. March 27.
The indictment said Waterman left bruises and cuts on the alleged victims face, arms and legs following the attack.
