New York State Police say 31-year-old Mark Sarama is in jail on $100,000 cash bail for charges including kidnapping and robbery.

Earlier in the day he had also gone to another residence and allegedly struck a 90-year-old man with a handgun, knocking him unconscious. He’s also accused of firing the weapon and stealing a flat-screen TV and cash.
