MASSENA -- A Winthrop man is jailed on numerous charges after allegedly holding a knife to a Massena woman’s throat, trying to kidnap her and then stealing a car from the residence where the alleged incident occurred.

Marcus A. Shatraw, 27, of 399 Buckton Road, Winthrop is charged with third-degree burglary and attempted second-degree kidnapping, both felonies, misdemeanor counts of child endangerment and second-degree menacing, and second-degree harassment, a violation, police said.

On Oct. 26, Shatraw allegedly entered 134 Liberty Ave. without permission, according to Chief Adam Love.

Once inside, Shatraw “attempted to abduct her (alleged victim) by placing a knife to her throat and removing her from the residence,” Love said.

The alleged incident happened in front of the woman’s child, according to police.

Shatraw took a car from the residence that didn’t belong to him and later turned himself in to Warren County authorities, where he was charged for the car theft, Love said.

Authorities there turned over Shatraw on an arrest warrant in Massena. He was arraigned by Massena Justice Patrick Serguson and remanded to the St. Lawrence County jail, Canton, in lieu of $50,000 bail or $100,000 bond, police said.
