Bush from Facebook

A city man on parole after serving time for numerous burglaries was arrested Friday and charged with punching a woman several times in the face, city police said.

Jon H. Bush, 37, of Walnut Street, was charged with third-degree assault. He also was charged with endangering the welfare of a child because the alleged assault happened in front of a child.

Bush was arraigned and committed to Genesee County Jail and was being detained without bail on a violation of parole warrant.

Bush was released from Collins Correctional Facility on May 7 after serving nearly seven years of an 8-year term for burglary convictions.

He is on parole until June 30, 2021 and post-release supervision until May 7, 2023.

Bush was convicted in 2013 of burglarizing houses in Batavia, stealing safes, jewelry, cash and prescription drugs.

One of those burglaries happened at his grandmother’s house on Hutchins Street, where Bush stole a safe containing about $14,000.

His accomplice in that crime was later convicted of a series of burglaries and armed robberies and was sentenced to 15 years in prison.
