State Police: Man arrested for assault charge

Posted:

WHITE CREEK, N.Y. – Early Saturday morning, State Police say they have arrested a man for an assault charge.

Troopers responded to a home on County Route 68 in the Town of White Creek for a report of two men fighting. One adult male and one adult female were taken to Southwestern Vermont Medical Center for injuries.

State Police say the male suffered minor injuries and the female has been treated and released.

An investigation led to the arrest of Florian Mayer, 48, who is the resident of the White Creek home where the incident took place. Mayer allegedly attacked the male victim and the female victim was able to escape the scene, according to authorities.

Alcohol does appear to be a factor in the incident, say State Police.

Mayer was arrested and charged for one count of Assault in the third degree and one count of Making a False Written Statement. State Police said the second charge was a result of a deposition he provided at the scene which was determined to be inconsistent with the facts of the case. 

Mayer was released on an appearance ticket for the Town of White Creek court.
