    The suspect arrested in connection with an assault at a Massachusetts YMCA pled not guilty at his arraingment in Stoughton District Court Friday, according to the Norfolk District Attorney.  

    Victor O. Rosario from Hyde Park pled not guilty to one charge of assault and battery and one count of trespassing. 

    Rosario, 35, was arrested early Friday in connection with an assault at the Stoughton YMCA branch in late July. He is ordered to return to court on August 29th.

    On July 24th, Rosario was involved in a basketball game at the Old Colony YMCA when an argument broke out, police previously said.

    The victim was attempting to break up the fight when the Rosario allegedly walked over and punched him. The victim was taken to the hospital with a broken jaw.

    Ellen Greene, executive director of the Stoughton YMCA branch, issued a statement earlier in the week saying her team was working with police.

    "We are fully cooperating with local authorities to identify the perpetrator involved in this incident," she said. "We take the health and well-being of our members’ very seriously. Our thoughts are with the individual that was injured and we wish them a speedy recovery."
