Police: Rochester man violates order of protection in 3rd incident involving same house, gun

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Rochester Police say they charged a man after he violated an order of protection inside a home with two children inside after a negotiator was able to get him to come out.

The incident took police about three hours and forty-five minutes.

It started at around 6 p.m. Sunday on Rockland Park between Clifton Street and Jefferson Terrace when police received a call that a man with outstanding criminal charges, involving the use of a firearm, was violating an order of protection.

Police say they surrounded the house and started talking with the suspect before he eventually left the house at around 9:45 p.m. No injuries were reported according to police.

Police arrested 36-year-old Austin Williams of Rochester and charged him with second degree criminal contempt for the incident that happened on Sunday.

Williams was also charged with first degree burglary, first degree criminal contempt and criminal mischief for a domestic incident that happened at the same home on Dec. 16 where police say he took out a gun and damaged property.

Police say the order of protection stemmed from a separate domestic incident that happened on Dec. 11, and that during that incident, Williams was arrested and charged with second degree menacing and was released at arraignment. That incident allegedly involved a gun too.

The incident from Sunday night was also filed as a domestic incident according to police.
