OCEAN CITY, Md. - Police say that an owner of a pizza restaurant in Ocean City was charged with assaulting a J-1 visa student on August 24.
According to Ocean City Police, on August 24 at 7:58 PM, officers responded to Tony's Pizza for a report of an assault that happened. The victim, a 25-year-old male J-1 student and an employee of the restaurant, said that he was assaulted by Tony Russo, the owner.
The victim was transported to Atlantic General Hospital by Ocean City E.M.S. with minor injuries.
Since this was a second degree assault, police say that officers could not press charges at the time because it did not happen while an officer was present.
The victim later filed charges with a Worcester County Commissioner who issued a court summons charging Russo with second degree assault.
