Police: Afton Man in Jail for Punching His Wife

An Afton man is under arrest after police say he punched his wife in the face, destroyed her phone to prevent her for calling for help, and did so in front of a child.

38-year-old Jeremy Astalos is facing charges of assault in the 3rd degree, endangering the welfare of a child, and criminal mischief, all misdemeanors.

State police say troopers responded to a 911 call about a dispute at a home on Hillside Drive in the Town of Afton on Saturday.

Astalos is in Chenango County Jail on $1,000 cash bail.

The court also placed an order of protection against Astalos.
