NORWICH – A parolee pleaded guilty to felony attempted assault in Chenango County Court Friday. He’d been arrested for attacking a Norwich woman in March and was later accused of a mugging in Oneida County.
In March, the Norwich Police Department was searching for 26-year-old Steven A. Shanholtzer, who was out on parole, for entering a home in the City of Norwich and assaulting a female victim he had a prior personal relationship with.
Shanholtzer was arrested by the Village of Herkimer Police Department March 19 after he allegedly mugged a victim around midnight. Following his arrest, officers reported Shanholtzer refused to cooperate with processing and attempted to mislead police about his identity.
