An East Windsor town official is accused of punching a 70-year-old man in the face, according to East Windsor police.
In a post on the department's Facebook page, police said they responded to a call from an elderly victim who claimed he was attacked by 65-year-old Deputy Selectman Steve Dearborn.
The police report says Dearborn punched the left side of the 70-year-old man’s face and the man fell to the ground. After hitting the man, Dearborn “aggressively continued to fight with the victim for several seconds,” the police report says.
