Mother Charged with Assaulting Child in Raritan
The Bridgewater Patch has reported that the Raritan Police Department has arrested and charged a borough resident following an incident on February 15, 2019. According to the reports that have been released at this point in time, it appears that the police were first dispatched to Thompson Street and Railroad Avenue after an individual could be heard screaming for help. When the officers arrived on scene and investigated the incident they determined that a juvenile was the one yelling for help. A further investigation led the officers to believe that the juvenile had been assaulted by their mother and that the injuries were consistent with a “lashing”.
