ITHACA, N.Y. (WENY) -- The Ithaca Police Department arrested a man in the early morning hours of Wednesday, June 19th after he allegedly tried to break into a house on W. Clinton Street with a handgun during a domestic incident, and then fled from police. Police say Takiem Foat fled the scene shortly after 1 a.m. when the victim called 911, but was seen by police after he returned and drove by the residence.

As a result, Foat was arrested and is awaiting arraignment on attempted burglary, criminal mischief, unlawful fleeing of a police officer in a motor vehicle, menacing, obstruction, two counts of reckless driving and numerous traffic violations.
