Penn Yan, N.Y. -- A Yates County man was arrested Friday after one of his relatives was found unconscious in a parking lot in Monroe County, according to the Penn Yan Police Department.
Paul West, 28, was arrested following an incident in which he went to a relative's home and demanded that he be brought to Greece to buy drugs. The victim refused and West began punching her in the head and ribs, police said.
