NORFOLK — Following an investigation into an August burglary, state police made seven arrests this fall.

State police and Norfolk police allege a West Main Street residence was burglarized twice on Aug. 28, with subjects first forcing entry at about 5:30 p.m. At about 11:30 p.m. the subjects are alleged to have returned to the residence, forced entry again and assaulted a resident inside.

The subjects are believed to have been armed with weapons during both incidents, police said.

The resident was taken to Canton-Potsdam Hospital and treated for lacerations to the face and head, two broken ribs and a collapsed lung.

The seven subjects were each charged with one count of first-degree burglary and one count of fourth-degree conspiracy.

Austin M. Mitchell, 19, and Schuyler G. Mitchell, 22, both of Massena, were remanded to St. Lawrence County jail, Canton, each in lieu of $25,000 cash bail, or $50,000 secured bond. The Mitchells were each additionally charged with a second count of first-degree burglary and fourth-degree conspiracy, due to their involvement in both incidents.

Sinclair D. Babb Jr., 21, of Massena, was remanded to county jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail, or $10,000 secured bond.

An unidentified 18-year-old Massena woman was remanded to county jail in lieu of $15,000 cash bail, or $30,000 secured bond.

Richard L. Schwartfigure Jr., 26, of Canton, was remanded to county jail without bail.
