ALBION – An Albion man allegedly broke into the home of an ex-girlfriend early this morning and struck the woman.

Christopher R. Enedy, 48, of Albion was charged with Burglary 2nd Illegal Entry to a Dwelling, a C felony; Criminal Contempt 1st Violate Order of Protection-Physical Contact, an E felony; Criminal Contempt 1st Violate Order of Protection w/ prior conviction, an E felony; Criminal Contempt 1st – Violate Order of Protection-Damage property of another person greater than $250, an E felony; Criminal Mischief 3rd – Damage another person’s property greater than $250, an E felony; Criminal Obstruction of Breathing/Blood Circulation, an A misdemeanor; and Harassment 2nd, a violation.

The Albion Police Department was dispatched to an East State Street residence at 4:57 a.m. Albion Police Chief David Mogle said the victim was asleep when she heard a loud banging outside with glass possibly breaking. Police officers were dispatched for a burglary in progress.

The victim stated the man kicked in her locked bedroom door while she was still in bed and attacked her, striking her in her face and chest and choking her around her neck until she couldn’t breathe.

The victim fled outside of the residence. Officers located a smashed-out basement window. A perimeter was established with the assistance of multiple Orleans County Sheriff’s personnel and a New York State Trooper, Mogle said.

Officers made entry to the residence and ultimately located Enedy hiding in an upstairs bedroom adjacent to the victim’s bedroom and he was taken into custody without incident.

Enedy, the victim’s ex-boyfriend, was arrested in 2023 by the Albion Police Department for a similar domestic-related incident with the same victim and a full stay-away order of protection was issued by Albion Town Justice Gary Moore.

Enedy this morning was transported to the Albion Police Department and will be subsequently placed in the Orleans County Jail to await CAP Court arraignment. The Albion Police Department was assisted by the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office, and the New York State Police.
