MAYVILLE – A Jamestown man who allegedly held a nine-year-old hostage during a standoff with police in 2018 has plead guilty in the case.
The Chautauqua County District Attorney’s Office announced that 28-year-old Nicholas Brown plead guilty this week to two counts of first-degree criminal contempt.
The man was arrested following a several hours long standoff inside an apartment on Spring Street Extended in Jamestown on September 23, 2018.
Police originally responded the location for a reported domestic violence call around 3 a.m.
The hostage situation ended around 2 p.m. that Sunday with the child unharmed and reunited with family members.
Brown will be sentenced in June; he could spend up to three years behind bars.
