WATERLOO — A local man faces several felony charges following a domestic incident early Wednesday morning.

Aden Blevins, 24, of 41 Church St., Apt. A-3, was charged by village police with felony criminal contempt, first-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree assault and second-degree attempted assault.

Village authorities, along with Seneca Falls police, Seneca County deputies and state police, responded to Blevins’ apartment about 12:30 a.m. after getting a report of a man threatening a woman with a hatchet.

After talking to witnesses and the alleged victim, police said Blevins cut the woman’s neck with a hatchet, hit her in the face with a wooden bar stool, threatened her with a kitchen knife, swung a baseball bat at her, threatened to burn the apartment down and bit her twice.

During the altercation, the woman was able to disarm Blevins and restrain him with the help of a neighbor until a call was made to 911. Shortly after the call, Blevins was able to free himself and fled the scene as police were arriving; he was taken into custody without incident a few blocks from the scene.

The woman was treated at the scene by Finger Lakes Ambulance personnel for a small cut to her neck, an injury to her nose and two bites to her leg.

Police said Blevins violated a court order of protection.

Blevins was arraigned in village court and taken to the Seneca County Correctional Facility on $25,000 bail $50,000 bond.
