North Greenbush man facing charges after allegedly assaulting a man at his house

A North Greenbush man has been arrested after assaulting a man at his home.

59-year-old Edward Schryver was arrested following an investigation into allegations he assaulted a man that was visiting him at his home, North Greenbush Police said.

At around 5:44 a.m. on Friday, July 7, police found a man covered in blood walking along North Greenbush Road who said he had been beaten several times with an object while he was sleeping over at the house of a man he had met the night before.  

He was taken by ambulance to Albany Medical Center where he was treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

After further investigation it was determined that the man was describing the home of Schryver, a parolee and level 3 sex offender, on Midland Road.

After searching the house, it was determined a wooden bowl was most likely the weapon used in the assault.

North Greenbush Police attempted to locate Schryver on Friday, after he was said to have been hiding in a wooded area behind his home.

Schryver was later found on New Scotland Avenue and arrested.

Schryver is charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon with intent to use.

He was arraigned at North Greenbush Town Court and remanded to Rensselaer County Jail with no bail because of several previous felony convictions.

Schryver was also ordered to receive a mental health evaluation based on threats he made to harm himself.

According to the New York State Sex Offender Registry, Schryver is listed as a level 3 sex offender due to an attempted kidnapping of a 12 year-old male in May 2010.

Schryver is due back in North Greenbush Town Court on Wednesday.

The victim of the assault is still recovering from his injuries.
