Brandon Lee Jackson, 39, was arrested for second-degree assault, reckless endangering, first-degree criminal trespass and other offenses related to the incident that continued until Tuesday morning.

He was also charged with second-degree theft in connection with alleged shoplifting on June 14, as well as second-degree theft and second-degree criminal mischief for an incident March 13 on Mill Street "when the rear window of Honda was broken and an instrument was stolen from the vehicle," police said.
