Man Uses Chain Saw to Cut Through Boss' Bedroom Door, Attacks Him: Police

Police haven't said what led to the confrontation

State police say a 29-year-old upstate New York man used a chain saw 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 chain saw late Sunday night to cut through a bedroom door at his employer's home in Poore's Lewis County hometown, 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 confrontation. 

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.
