Man charged in assault

A Goshen man was arrested Wednesday after a domestic dispute escalated into violence.
The situation unfolded in the parking lot of Serv-Cold, a cold storage warehouse facility on North Three Notch Street around 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Markice Deon Crenshaw, 27, was arrested at the scene and charged with domestic violence in the third degree, punishable by up to one year in prison and $6,000 in fines.
Troy Police Chief Randall Barr said police responded to a call received around 4:40 p.m. Wednesday about the incident.
“His girlfriend was an employee of the business,” Barr said, adding that Crenshaw apparently went to the business to see her and an argument ensued.
“Evidently, it was pretty heated,” Barr said. “He struck her vehicle with his, broke out her window, and assaulted her, dragging her out of the car.”
Police were in route to the scene when they say the victim’s co-worker discharged a firearm into the air in an attempt to break up the situation.
“That worked and both the suspect and the victim were still on the scene when we got there,” Barr said.
Barr said the victim sustained minor injuries, but that Crenshaw received injuries to his hand when he broke out the window. Crenshaw was taken to the hospital for treatment.
Crenshaw will spend 24 hours in the city jail before being eligible for bond, but more charges may be pending as the investigation continues and the charges could be upgraded to felony charges.
