HENRIETTA, N.Y. (WHEC) — A man and a woman are facing charges after they allegedly attacked a Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputy.

The Sheriff’s Department says the incident began just after 2 a.m. Sunday, June 28 when a deputy attempted to stop a car for running a red light at the intersection of Jefferson Road and East Henrietta Road.


The deputy stopped the car in a parking lot, and the woman who was driving and the man who was the passenger allegedly got out of the car, even though the deputy who stopped them told them to stay inside it.

The woman then entered the store, and the deputy attempted to detain her there, the Sheriff’s Office says she started pulling away, striking and pushing the deputy.

The Sheriff’s Office says the man then entered the store, interfering with the arrest, yelling obscenities and physically attacking the deputy.

He allegedly struck the deputy in the face several times while the woman continued pushing and striking the deputy.

She then fled from the store while the man continued to fight the deputy, according to the MCSO.

The man allegedly attempted to flee the store but was taken into custody just outside the door.

Deputies say they found the woman shortly after, hiding behind the Boston Market.

The Sheriff’s Office says the arresting deputy had a laceration on the inside of his lip, a bruised, painful and swollen face and pain and swelling in his right knee after the incident.

Marcus McCreary, 39, of Gates is facing charges of second-degree assault, obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest.

He was arraigned at Henrietta Town Court and released on his own recognizance.

Jessica Sainz, 26, of Rochester was charged with obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest. 

She was released with an appearance ticket.
