The Man was Found and Treated at WCCH:
A ‘safe ending’ in Perry as man found and treated for injuries

A man who was the subject of a search late Monday afternoon and into the night in and around the village was found and treated for injuries he suffered during an incident earlier in the day.

Wyoming County Sheriff’s Captain Edward Till said deputies and state police were called to a house in Silver Springs at 2:50 p.m. for a report that a 30-year-old man was “trashing his own residence.”

Police arrived within minutes but the man had left the house. Police were told that he suffered cuts to his hand and arm from punching a window. The man left in a car, which he totaled on East Lake Road shortly after fleeing his house, Till said.

Witnesses told deputies that a truck driver picked him up and dropped him off in Perry. That led to a public Facebook post from Perry Police Department, telling residents to lock their doors and outbuildings as the man was seen trying to get into several homes and barns. He was last seen wearing a blue shirt, black pants and socks but no shoes, police said.

Police followed blood trails through the snow going to and around houses on St. Helena Street but were unable to find the man, who Till said was not dressed for the weather and was in need of medical attention. He was located later and treated at Wyoming County Community Hospital.

Till said the man’s name is not being released at this time and that no charges have been filed. He said the public was instrumental in providing tips and other information “in bringing this situation to a safe ending.”

Perry Police posted this at 7:25 p.m. -- “At this time the subject has been located and there is no further need for concern for the safety of residents in this area. As always, Chief (Michael) Grover and the Perry Police Department encourage all our residents to secure all homes, garages, barns, etc.

"While we appreciate and embrace the small town feeling of safety and camaraderie, situations like this remind us that it’s not just our neighbors we should keep in mind when considering the security of our homes and property. As always, report suspicious activity by calling 911.”
