VIRGIL, N.Y. – Three men were arrested Friday in connection with a home disturbance in the town of Virgil.

At around 11:35 p.m. Thursday, officers from the Cortland County Sheriff’s Office responded to a disturbance at a home on Route 392 in Virgil following a 911 report.

Officers were told that three male suspects who had been visiting the home had assaulted one of the residents and had already left the area. It was also reported that the suspects attempted to take a cellphone away from the resident while she was calling 911, the sheriff’s office said.

When officers arrived a short time later, they learned that the suspects had made “slight contact” with the female resident with their vehicle, causing her minor injuries. She was transported to Cortland Regional Medical Center by TLC Ambulance where she was treated for leg, back, arm, and neck injuries.

Officers located the male suspects a few minutes later at a home in the Blodgett Mills area. They were taken into custody without incident and transported to the Cortland County Sheriff’s Office for questioning.

The male suspects were charged with second-degree attempted robbery, a class D felony; fourth-degree attempted grand larceny, a misdemeanor; fifth-degree conspiracy, a misdemeanor; and third-degree assault, a misdemeanor.

They are identified as Jeffery Scutt, 22, of Tully; Joshua Kinney, 30, of Cortland; and Collin Chorley, 20, of Tully.

The investigation is continuing and additional charges are possible, the sheriff’s office said.
