DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- Three Dutchess County men are behind bars after attacking a resident during a burglary in the Town of Poughkeepsie, police said.
The incident took place on Friday, Oct. 27 when the Town of Poughkeepsie Police responded to a building on Lagrange Avenue in Arlington to investigate damage to a front door, said Capt. Ken Roman.
