When deputies arrived to the residence where the dispute took place, Maciol says deputies learned that the brother of the woman who called 911, 36-year-old William Noviscky, had allegedly engaged in the physical dispute in front of the woman's 7-year-old child. Maciol says Noviscky fled the scene after the incident, but deputies were able to locate him a short time after the incident in a shed behind the residence in question. Noviscky was taken into custody without incident.

As a result of the arrest Noviscky is facing several charges including Endangering the Welfare of a Child, Criminal Obstruction of Breathing and Harassment, according to Sheriff Maciol. Upon being arrested Noviscky was then transported to Oneida County Jail to await arraignment. Maciol says the Sheriff's office was assisted in the investigation by New York State Police.
