Rome Police are looking for a local man on several charges, including Public Lewdness and Menacing, according to Captain Kevin James of the Rome Police Department.

James says, Elvin Nieves is wanted by the Rome Police on an arrest warrant for Public Lewdness as well as an arrest warrant for Menacing in the 2nd degree and Aggravated Harassment in the 2nd degree.

The Public Lewdness warrant is stemming from an incident that occurred in November of 2021. During this incident, Nieves was alleged to have exposed an intimate body part and committed a lewd act while in a public place, police say.  The second warrant is also stemming from an incident that occurred in November of 2021, where it is alleged Nieves threatened to shoot a female while holding a handgun.  This incident occurred hours after a shots fired call was investigated at the apartment complex where the female victim lived. Police say, that incident happened during the overnight hours and only damaged the building, no one was injured. James says Nieves’ last known address was on West Liberty Street in Rome, but is believed to currently be homeless. He also has ties to Syracuse and Watertown, according to James.
