Police responded to an offensive touching complaint at a party Sunday morning, according to Newark police spokesman MCpl. Gerald Bryda.
At 2:46 a.m., a group of people arrived at a party at Holton Place, located near the Amtrak Station, and began fighting outside the residence, Bryda said.
One of the residents, a 23-year-old man, attempted to break up the fight, Bryda said. The man was approached from behind by an unidentified person, who punched the victim in the head, which knocked him to the ground.
When police arrived at the residence, most of the party-goers fled the scene, and those who remained were unable to identify the suspect, Bryda said.
If found, the suspect would be charged with one count of offensive touching.
