City man accused of Genesee jail assault


BATAVIA — A city man under indictment for repeated domestic violence arrests was arrested Monday and charged with trying to assault an officer at Genesee County Jail.

Alex S. Dumbleton, 28, of East Main Street was charged with attempted second-degree assault.

An investigation into the Aug. 30 incident revealed Dumbleton was involved in a fight with officers and attempted to kick them.

Dumbleton was in jail after he was indicted earlier this year on a number of domestic violence-related charges.

He is charged with felony criminal contempt of court, misdemeanor criminal contempt of court, endangering the welfare of a child, attempted criminal mischief and harassment.

Dumbleton is accused of entering a Pearl Street apartment Dec. 11, violating an order of protection in front of a child.

Dumbleton has a criminal history dating back to when he was arrested for dealing cocaine in Batavia when he was 18.

He was repeatedly charged with violating orders of protection, including being charged in 2014 with felonies after he violated an order and choked a woman.

He was convicted and sentenced to a 16-month to four year prison term.

He was released but returned to prison for violating parole in 2017. He was released in March 2018 and was on parole until June 26, 2018, according to state Department of Corrections.

Dumbleton already had been arrested twice within the past year. He was charged with petit larceny for stealing from Walmart in April and a short time later was charged with harassment, endangering the welfare of a child and obstruction of governmental administration. He was accused of subjecting a child to “unwanted physical contact” and struggling with police.
