Two men were arrested by New York State Police following an incident at Ira Davenport Memorial Hospital in Bath.
26 year old Cheyenne Koons, of Cohocton, and 25 year old Jamie Gould, of Bath, were charged with endangering the welfare of a mentally incompetent person. Troopers allege the men assisted a mental health patient in absconding from the hospital. The patient was awaiting transfer to a mental health facility and fled the hospital prior to transport, allegedly with the help of Gould and Koons.
The patient was later located and returned to the hospital. Both men will appear in Urbana Town Court tonight.
