Batavia man charged in assaults


BATAVIA — A Batavia man was arrested Wednesday on warrants for multiple separate assaults on the same victim in September, city police said.

Dajuandrick C. Gardner, 44, was charged on warrants stemming from an investigation into the alleged attacks that happened throughout September, Detective Sgt. Matt Lutey said.

Gardner is charged with one count of second-degree assault with a weapon, third-degree criminal possession of a weapon because of a previous felony conviction, four counts of third-degree assault, two counts of attempted third-degree assault and one count of fourth-degree criminal mischief for allegedly damaging property during one of the altercations.

Lutey said all of the charges relate to domestic violence situations involving the same victim on “multiple occasions in September.”

Gardner also is charged with numerous traffic violations, he said.

Gardner was arraigned and committed to Genesee County Jail without bail.

Gardner has an extensive criminal history and has served three state prison terms since 1999: One for forgery and two others for dealing drugs in Genesee County.

His last sentence was a five-year term for dealing drugs in 2014. He was released in 2019 and was on post-release supervision until November 2020, according to the NYS Department of Corrections.
