A violent assault in Wayne County has resulted in the arrest of a 38 year old town of Wolcott man.
Police were called around 1:30 Saturday morning after a woman could be heard screaming for help around the 69-HUNDRED block of Main Street in Red Creek. Walter Clark is accused of pushing, slamming to the ground, dragging and punching about the face and body a woman he was in a relationship with. When a deputy sheriff sergeant arrived on scene, Clark could be seen hovering over the victim. He ran from the scene as the sergeant started to render aid to the victim. The woman suffered fractures to her face and ribs, a collapsed lung and several cuts that required stitches. She is currently hospitalized at an undisclosed location.
Clark turned himself into police Monday and was charged with felony assault. He was sent to Wayne County Jail following his arraignment. An order of protection was issued on behalf of the victim.
