ITHACA, N.Y.—Police have arrested an Ithaca man on a slew of charges related to assault and child endangerment.

According to the Ithaca Police Department, an officer claimed they “located a moving vehicle on Lake Street, which was occupied by a subject that had multiple warrants” around 11 a.m. on Jan. 19. One of those warrants was for a “violent felony.”

The police officer apparently initiated a traffic stop as the vehicle turned onto Renwick Heights Road in the Town of Ithaca. The driver, Raymond Kamila, refused to get out of the car initially, but did exit the vehicle after a few minutes and “was taken into custody without incident.”

Kamila was taken in on warrants of second degree attempted burglary, second degree attempted assault, third degree criminal mischief, endangering the welfare of a child, fourth degree criminal possession of a weapon, criminal tampering and harassment. He was arraigned and remanded to Tompkins County Jail.
