Man accused of shooting hunting arrow into house in court
The man accused of shooting an arrow into a family's home is due in court
23-year-old Philip Niccloy was arrested for shooting a hunting arrow into
a house in the village of Brockport.
The arrow just missed Erica Russell's daughter.
Police charged Niccloy of LeRoy for reckless endangerment and criminal
mischief. They didn't say how he was caught, but they say he was not
targeting the family.
Niccloy was ticketed and released. He will be arraigned in Sweden Town
Court tonight at 6 o'clock.
Erica Russell's two young daughters were watching T.V. in the living room
Monday night, when an arrow pierced a window and hit the opposite wall.
"All of a sudden I heard a pop; I looked out the window and could see
someone standing out there. And when we made eye contact, he ran," said
Russell quickly gathered her kids, headed upstairs, and called police.
Over the next few days, Brockport Police looked for evidence like tracks in
the snow, and the Monroe County Sheriff's office took the arrow for
When we ask if anyone had a reason to hurt anyone in the home, Russell
replied, "No. We have no enemies. That's the one thing police are pretty
certain about, that we weren't targeted, it was random."
Brockport Police Department said that they see a lot of cases, but this
particular one was one of the more disturbing.
