A 26-year-old Seneca Falls man was arrested on three separate occasions in a 36 hour period in crimes involving stolen bicycles, punching a female in the face in front of a child, and threatening two men with a tire iron on Green Street. On Tuesday at about 12:02 am the Town of Seneca Falls Police Department arrested Brandon S. Stone, age 26 of Peterman Road in Seneca Falls, with intimidating a witness in the third degree, a felony.
