MORRISTOWN — State police on Thursday arrested four people in connection to a reported domestic incident at a residence on Route 58 in Morristown.

After responding around 2:24 a.m., troopers allege John D. Latray III, 24, of Massena, Shyann L. Shenk, 23, of Ogdensburg, Katherine H. House, 20, of Ogdensburg and an unidentified 18-year-old, also of Ogdensburg, were involved in an assault of a male and female at the residence, in the presence of a 9-year-old child. Troopers further allege Latray menaced the residents with a machete and the defendants left the scene in a vehicle before being stopped by Ogdensburg City Police and taken into custody.

All four defendants were charged with one count each of third-degree assault and endangering the welfare of a child. Latray was additionally charged with second-degree menacing and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon. They were arraigned at Canton Town Court and released on appearance tickets for Morristown Town Court for a future date.
