Niagara Falls Couple’s Disturbing Attack on Elderly Man Heads to Grand Jury After Shocking Discovery

Niagara Falls Couple to Face Grand Jury in “Vicious and Violent” Attack

TOWN OF NIAGARA – A couple from Niagara Falls, New York, has waived their right to a preliminary hearing on Monday following what law enforcement sources describe as a “vicious and violent” attack on a man in the Town of Niagara. Gregory Perry, 31, and Ashley McMillen, 35, have been incarcerated since their arrest on Tuesday night. Perry is being held without bail, while McMillen’s bail is set at $100,000.

Law enforcement officials apprehended the couple after forcibly entering a trailer in Cayuga Village. To their dismay, they discovered a man in his 70s, who had been bound and beaten in his bathroom. Law enforcement body camera footage, reviewed by sources, has been described as “disturbing.”

Gregory Perry faces charges of second-degree assault, first-degree criminal contempt, second-degree kidnapping, and second-degree robbery. He has pleaded not guilty to these charges. Ashley McMillen, on the other hand, has been charged with second-degree assault, second-degree kidnapping, and second-degree robbery, and has also pleaded not guilty.

According to Town of Niagara Police Chief Craig Guillani, the victim’s son reported his father missing on Tuesday afternoon. When the chief arrived at the victim’s trailer in Cayuga Village, he encountered Perry, who had been identified as a “stepson” or “caregiver” of the victim. However, subsequent investigations revealed that Perry had no family relation to the victim, and a court-issued order of protection prohibited him from contacting the man.

After locating the victim’s car parked and locked nearby, Chief Guillani sought help from the sheriff’s office investigators. They acted swiftly, concerned for the victim’s safety, and forcefully entered the trailer. Inside, they discovered the seriously injured victim, who was confined in the bathroom.

Town police and the sheriff’s investigators thoroughly searched the residence and promptly transported the victim to Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo for treatment of his life-threatening injuries.

Chief Guillani commended the sheriff’s investigators for their assistance and affirmed that the investigation into the kidnapping and attack remains active. Additional evidence found by the investigators has not been disclosed.

The case will now be presented to a grand jury in Niagara County, where decisions will be made regarding the couple’s charges.
