Herkimer County man charged twice in one day in separate violent incidents, police say


OLD FORGE — A Herkimer County man was charged twice in one day for two separate violent incidents, according to the Webb Police Department.

Police said Aquan L. Moultrie, 21, of Lyons Falls, attacked an acquaintance near Point Park in Old Forge at about 10:55 p.m. May 31. Police said Moultrie punched the other man in the jaw and choked him, then told the victim Moultrie was going to rob him.

The victim managed to escape and flee, and police said Moultrie chased after him and shoved him to the ground. Police said Moultrie then stole property from the victim and left.

Around 12:22 a.m. June 1, police said Moultrie was the passenger in a vehicle stopped on North Street in Old Forge. Police said Moultrie was intoxicated and arguing with the driver, then got out of the vehicle and continued arguing from the middle of the street.

The argument turned physical, authorities stated, disrupting traffic and drawing the attention of neighbors. Police responded to the scene and Moultrie was charged with disorderly conduct, police said. He was released on an appearance ticket for Webb Town Court.

Later in the day on June 1, police said the victim from the first attack came forward and reported it to the authorities. Police said they tracked down Moultrie again and took him into custody for a second time on June 1 on new charges of felony fourth-degree grand larceny, criminal obstruction of breathing and second-degree harassment.

Moultrie was arraigned in court and was released on his own recognizance. He is scheduled to reappear in court on June 14.
