JAMESTOWN – A Jamestown man was jailed pending arraignment after he allegedly tried to block Jamestown Police from entering a Broadhead Ave. residence to investigate a reported assault at 1:09 a.m. Friday.
Thomas E. Salverson, 40, is charged with endangering the welfare of a child, obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest. Police said they responded to an assault in progress but that Salverson stood in the doorway and refused to let officers pass. They advised him to let then through and he refused. There was, police said, a brief struggle and Salverson was arrested.
Police said this all happened in front of a 10-year-old child.
