Carteret police officer charged with assault for allegedly punching teen

“A New Jersey police officer is under arrest, accused of assaulting and causing injury to a teenager.

Repeatedly punched, kicked, and cuffed following a car crash at Edwin and Bergen Street last week, criminal charges were filed Friday against a Carteret police officer accused of beating a 16-year-old boy.

The teen’s family posted pics of his injuries on social media and are now speaking out demanding justice.

“I just wanted to get my son to the hospital as quick as possible,” said Russell Stewart, the boy’s father. “It looked like his jaw, head was broken.””
