Sullivan (WSYR-TV) – A Madison County man who was awaiting sentencing for his role in a violent home invasion that took place in Oswego County last year is facing new charges after a standoff in the town of Sullivan. Jonathan Onn and at least one other suspect were accused of robbing
a residence in the Waterwheel Apartment Complex in Constantia in August 2011. The men then led police on a chase throughout the area. They were finally arrested in Canastota.
On Wednesday morning, State Police went to Onn’s residence in Sullivan in response to a reported domestic dispute.
When a trooper knocked on the door, he heard a gun being prepared inside. Police say the 23-year-old man opened the door while holding the gun and then slammed it shut. When Onn began covering the residence’s windows, police began evacuating the neighborhood and establishing a perimiter.
Onn then exited the residence behind his wife, who was holding their infant daughter.
Police were able to wrest the baby away from the couple, but Jonathan Onn resisted until police used pepper spray and handcuffed him.
Police at the scene sustained non-life-threatening injuries.
Onn was charged with:
- Endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor
- Menacing a police officer, a felony
- Resisting arrest, a misdemeanor
- Assault in the second degree, a felony
He was arraigned in the town of Sullivan and taken to Madison County Jail in lieu of $100,000 cash bail or $500,000 bond. He is expected to return to court on June 5.
His sentencing in the Oswego County home-invasion incident is scheduled for June 1.
