Troopers assaulted in Westchester County

CORTLANDT – A Montrose man is in the Westchester County Jail without bail for allegedly assaulting two state troopers from the Cortlandt barracks after he hit another man in the head and face with a piece of wood, breaking his nose.

Troopers were called to a fight in progress in a parking lot of the Post Road Deli at 2119 Albany Post Road in the Town of Cortlandt at 5:35 p.m. on August 30.

Their investigation revealed Carlos Rosario, 48, of Montrose had just been in a fight with another man and hit him in the head and face with a piece of wood as well as menaced him with a knife.

When a trooper arrived to interview Rosario, he became belligerent and threatened to fight the trooper and wound up assaulting two troopers by kicking and punching them.  After being pepper sprayed, Rosario continued to resist arrest and eventually was Tasered to be taken into custody without further incident.

Both troopers were treated and released at Hudson Valley Hospital for a contusion to the head for one officer and a contusion to the arm of the other.

Both Rosario and the victim were treated and released from the hospital. Rosario suffered a laceration to his left temple from the original fight with the victim and that may suffered a broken nose and received several stitches to his head behind his ear.

Rosario was charged with three counts of felony assault, two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, and one count each of obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest.
