A Savona man is in Steuben County Jail after he allegedly threatened a former girlfriend and her daughter.
When Steuben County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a 911 call they found a woman climbing out of a window with her child in her arms, yelling that a man had a knife. Mathew Smith was taken into custody for entering the home and grabbing a knife, before threatening the victim in front of her daughter. He allegedly took her phone to prevent her from calling 911.
The 37 year old is jailed on charges of burglary, menacing, endangering the welfare of a child, criminal possession of a weapon, and criminal mischief.
