STATE POLICE SAY a 29-year-old man used a chainsaw to cut through a door at his boss’s upstate New York home, causing severe injuries to the employer’s hand.

Troopers say Kyle Poore, of Lyons Falls, used a running chainsaw late last Sunday night to cut through a bedroom door at his employer’s Lewis County home, located 55 miles northeast of Syracuse.

Police say Poore caused severe cuts and tendon damage to his boss’s hand, then fled the scene on foot before troopers arrived.

A state police K-9 tracked Poore through nearby fields and a wooded area before he was caught.

Police haven’t said what led to the incident.

Poore is jailed on assault and other charges. Prosecutors say lawyers assigned to his case had conflicts of interest, so he’ll be assigned another lawyer.
