SAUGERTIES – A 30-year-old man is facing five misdemeanor charges including endangering the welfare of a child after Saugerties police said he attacked a woman at a motel and refused to let her and a 7-year-old boy leave his room.

Saugerties police said officers responded to a 911 call reporting a domestic dispute at the Wenton Motel on Route 9W shortly before 1:30 a.m. Saturday.

Police said an investigation determined that Joseph R. Daprile Jr., 30, who lives at the motel, put his forearm against the neck of an unidentified woman, causing her to have breathing difficulties. He also took a cellular phone away from a 7-year-old boy to prevent him from calling 911, police said.

Police said the woman had a no-harassment order of protection against Daprile, who was charged with endangering the welfare of a child, second-degree unlawful imprisonment, fourth-degree criminal mischief, criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation and second-degree criminal contempt, all misdemeanors.

He was arraigned in Town of Saugerties Justice Court and released on $500 bail, pending a Wednesday court appearance. The court issued the woman a no-contact order of protection.
