Man accused of violating two orders of protection during domestic incident in Watertown

WATERTOWN, NY —   Henry Arencibia, 35, of 19226 US Route 11, Apt. 15, Watertown, was charged by Watertown police at 12:35 a.m. Monday, Dec. 23, at 700 Nellis St. with first-degree criminal contempt, a felony, fourth-degree criminal mischief, a misdemeanor, second-degree criminal contempt, a misdemeanor, endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor, and second-degree harassment.

Mr. Arencibia is accused of violating the terms of a Jefferson County Court refrain-from order of protection when he swung his arm near the face of the protected party, Nicole Ives, 31, with an “open hand like he was going to slap her and told her that he was going to beat her up during a domestic incident,” at about 12:09 a.m. Monday at 700 Nellis St., according to court documents.

He additionally struck a stove top with a baby bottle several times causing a piece of the ceramic coating to break off, police said.

He also allegedly violated the terms of another refrain-from order of protection when he “intimidated and threatened to beat up an 11-year-old girl,” police said.

He was being held pending arraignment Monday morning in City Court.
