More charges issued against man accused of harassing estranged wife


A Rochester man accused of harassing his estranged wife in Rome has been charged by two more local law enforcement agencies with additional harassment complaints, officials stated. 

Christopher R. Aikens, 34, of 80 Brunswick St., made numerous hang-up telephone calls to a person in the City of Sherrill between Feb. 9 and March 7, according to the Sherrill Police Department. Police said Aikens was repeatedly calling the boyfriend of his estranged wife and hanging up. 

Aikens was taken into custody by the Sherrill Police Department on May 13 on 28 counts of second-degree aggravated harassment, police said. He is scheduled to appear in Sherrill City Court. 

The state police also charged Aikens on May 13 with one count of second-degree aggravated harassment in a separate case in the Town of Lee, troopers said. Calls to the state police to seek more details on their case were not immediately returned this morning. 

Meanwhile, Aikens has ongoing cases in both Rome City Court and Utica City Court. 

In Rome, police said Aikens is charged with two counts of second-degree harassment for making harassing telephone calls to his estranged wife during their divorce proceedings over the past two years, and for having gun magazine subscriptions sent to her home. He is next scheduled to appear in Rome on June 3. 

In Utica, police said Aikens made excessive telephone calls to his wife’s divorce attorney in January. He is next scheduled to appear in Utica on May 22.
