A town of Potsdam man is accused of holding a woman down so she couldn't call authorities.
St. Lawrence County sheriff's deputies say 42 year old William Pena of County Route 35 allegedly held the victim in a chair by her arms to stop her from calling 911.
Deputies say it happened Wednesday during a domestic argument.
He was charged with second-degree harassment and fourth-degree criminal mischief.
Pena was released to appear in Potsdam town court at a later date.
