HERKIMER – A Herkimer man is facing numerous felony charges after he admitted to breaking into a home on two separate occasions, according to the Herkimer Police Department.

Johnathan McNair, 33, was arrested Wednesday following a lengthy investigation.

Police say on March 5, they responded to a home on North Caroline Street after receiving a report that a man had forced entry into the home and assaulted the homeowner. Responding officers were met by the victim who was bleeding from a head wound they sustained during the attack.

Police say they interviewed several neighbors and collected evidence from inside the home, and the details of the incident were very similar to a previous incident that occurred at the same address in Sept. 2017, where someone broke in and stole several items.

During the investigation McNair became a person of interest, and police say when they interviewed him on May 16 he admitted to committing both burglaries.

In connection to the Sept. 2017 incident, McNair is charged with felony second-degree burglary, felony third-degree criminal mischief and misdemeanor petit larceny.

In connection to the March 2018 incident, McNair is charged with felony first-degree burglary, felony second-degree assault and felony third-degree criminal mischief.

McNair was processed and arraigned in the Town of German Flatts Court and sent to the Herkimer County Jail without bail, because police say he has several prior felony convictions.
