North Salem Police assist New York State Police in arrest of Bronx man for violent domestic incident in Somers
On June 28, the New York State Police from the Somers barracks arrested Raymond L. Laudo, 66, of Bronx, New York, for burglary, assault, strangulation, criminal possession of a weapon and menacing following a June 13 incidence at a residence in Somers.
On June 13, Troopers were dispatched to a residence on Summit Circle for a domestic dispute involving a gun. Responding Troopers found a man suffering from a gunshot wound to the arm, and the resident of the home suffering from blunt force trauma to the head caused by a metal pipe. Both subjects were transported to Westchester Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries and later released.
The investigation determined that Laudo had forcibly entered the residence and violently assaulted the victim. The victim then fired one round from a .22 caliber rifle in self-defense.
Laudo was arraigned in the Town of Somers Court and released on $25,000 bail. He is scheduled to reappear before the court on July 17.
The New York State Police was assisted by the Town of Somers Police and Town of North Salem Police.
