NORWICH – A grand jury has indicted a New Berlin man for allegedly attacking a teenage girl and holding her against her will.
Twenty-year-old Robert A. Mowers II was indicted for two counts of second degree assault, a Class D felony, for allegedly seizing the 19-year-old victim by her neck outside of his Drake Lane residence in New Berlin. The girl was choked to unconsciousness before Mowers dragged her into his residence, according to the indictment.
The victim later escaped Mowers and went to Chenango Memorial Hospital, where she was treated for multiple fractures to her jaw, chipped teeth and bruised legs, said New York State Police Investigator Michelle M. Marshall.
The victim was later transported to the Syracuse Medical Center. The brutal attack left the teen with multiple stitches and her mouth was wired shut, noted the indictment.
