• A 24-year-old Shirley man was arrested and charged with numerous offences on Sept. 12 at 2:30 p.m., after police responded to a report that he was attacking his girlfriend in the parking area of the Empire Gas Station in Laurel, police said.

Parked at the same gas station, an off-duty New York State Court Officer witnessed Jordan M. Gormez apparently attack his female companion and then threaten violence toward the court officer and his wife, police said. After police responded to a call regarding the incident, Gormez fled on foot and was immediately pursued by the police officer on the scene.

Gormez repeatedly ignored lawful commands from the officer and confronted and physically attacked the officer numerous times, police said. Gormez was able to get behind the police officer and attempted to grab the officer's gun, at which point the off-duty court officer was able to assist in constraining and eventually subduing Gormez. Investigation revealed that Gormez had also done considerable damage to the female victim's vehicle.

OnStar was notified and the vehicle was located at McCabe's residence, police said. McCabe was arrested and found to be in the possession of stolen property and it was discovered that McCabe also burglarized McDowell's residence. She was held overnight to await arraignment in the morning.
