A man out on bail after a conflict last weekend is alleged to have threatened the same victim on Saturday, according to state police in Cortlandt. 

Gerald R. Martin, 46, faces a count of first degree Criminal Contempt, a Class "E" Felony. 

Police allege that on May 3 Martin violated a Order of Protection when he called a family member and threatened to harm the protected party. 

At the time, he was free on $10,000 bail from an arrest last weekend involving the same victim, police said. 

Martin, who currently lives in White Plains, was tracked to a location in Scarsdale, where he was taken into custody. 

He was arraigned in Cortlandt Town Court on the new charge and sent to the Westchester County Jail without bail, police said. 

If convicted on the new charge, he faces up to four years in State Prison. He is due to return to Cortlandt Town Court May 5.
