A Cortland County man is accused of illegally taking a woman’s children from her home during a domestic dispute.

Sheriff’s officials say 41 year old Sheldon O’Neill was arrested following a brief struggle after returning to the woman’s home.

Officials say they were headed to O’Neill’s residence in Marathon July 22 to look for the children when they found him driving on McGraw Marathon Road, headed back to the victim’s house.

Deputies say they tried to pull O’Neill over, but he refused to stop until he got into the woman’s driveway.

Deputies say the three children, all 12 or under, were unharmed.

O’Neill is charged with three counts of endangering the welfare of a child, resisting arrest, failure to comply and aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle.

He’s been ordered to appear in Town of Freetown Court next month.
