Peter Frank Mason, 21, of 68 Uxbridge St. in Cranston was arrested Aug. 13 at 7:44 a.m. on charges of simple assault and disorderly conduct.
Mason allegedly punched a 21-year-old woman in the face who was attempting to break up a fight between Mason and another partygoer on July 5. According to reports, Mason “deliberately punched her in the mouth” which knocked out one of her teeth and cracked another.
Once others at the party were made aware of the assault, a group of men reportedly chased Mason down the street – at which point Mason’s friend, who was asleep in his car outside the residence, awoke to see the chase. According to the friend, one of the men was holding a piece of wood, which he believed was used to hit Mason in the head. Police allegedly found the piece of wood with what appeared to be blood on it.
No one at the party was able to identify the men that reportedly chased and assaulted Mason before fleeing the area. According to police, most of the events of the night were relayed through the friend as Mason appeared to be highly intoxicated and unable to communicate to officers.
Mason was brought to Rhode Island Hospital for treatment due to a large cut on his head from the alleged assault that was bleeding profusely. On Aug. 13, Mason turned himself in to the North Kingstown Police Department.
