According to Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol, a Utica man was arrested on several charges after an investigation into an incident at a relatives residence on Sandy Circle in the Town of Floyd.

On January 13, 2019, members of the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office responded to a reported disturbance at 7758 Sandy Circle in the Town of Floyd. Upon arrival, they were confronted by a man who was armed with a dagger and refused deputies orders to drop the weapon. The man came at deputies in a threatening manner and menaced them with the dagger on several occasions throughout the incident. Pepper spray was deployed as the man continued to refuse orders to drop the weapon and continued to swing the dagger at them. After deploying pepper spray and further negotiating with the man he eventually dropped the dagger and was taken into custody without further incident. No members of the sheriff’s office were injured as a result of this incident. The man was later identified as 23 year old, Robert Carcone of Utica.

Carcone was transported to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office, law enforcement building and processed on several charges. Those charges include felony charge of menacing a police officer and misdemeanor charges of criminal possession of a weapon, resisting arrest, criminal mischief and menacing another party prior to law enforcement’s arrival. He was taken to the Oneida County C.A.P. court and arraigned on the charges.

The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by members of the New York State Police and New York State Environmental Conservation Police. Carcone was treated at the scene by members of the Floyd Fire Department and Amcare Ambulance before being transported to the sheriff’s office for processing.
