An Enfield man is behind bars on an assault charge, and police say it’s all because of 20 bucks.

Police say a man called them to report that he was assaulted last Thursday in the 800 block of West Seneca Street in Ithaca. James Terry Jr., 44, is accused of attacking the unidentified victim over a debt that he allegedly owed Terry.

After that incident, police say the victim had to be taken to the hospital for treatment of his injuries.

Police got another call to the same Seneca Street location at about 5:30 Tuesday night. Police say Terry threatened the victim again, but this time, officers were able to find Terry and make an arrest.

Police say Terry was combative during the arrest, but there were no reports of injuries to any officers.

Terry was taken to the Tompkins County Jail, where he’s being held on $20,000 cash bailr, $40,000 bond bail.
