A Lyons Falls man, 29-year-old Kyle M. Poore, had a vendetta against his boss and wanted to exact revenge. Poore decided to break into his employer’s house just 55 miles northeast of Syracuse, New York. This wasn’t your typical break in as Poore was brandishing a running chainsaw. Once inside the home, Poore used the tool-turned-weapon to cut through his boss’ bedroom door and attack him. The male victim sustained severe cuts and tendon damage to his hands in the attack.
The incident took place about 10 p.m. on Sunday night. Poore then fled the scene on foot. When police arrived on the scene, troopers brought in a bloodhound to search the area. Poore was later apprehended by Trooper Kevin P. Conners and bloodhound Schini. Lewis County sheriff’s deputies assisted.
Poore was charged with first-degree burglary, second-degree assault, third-degree criminal possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child. He was arraigned in New Bremen Town Court and sent to Lewis County Jail on $15,000 cash bond. In 2015, Poore was sentenced to one year in county jail on a charge of third-degree burglary charge.
