PEEKSKILL, N.Y. – A Peekskill man faces a felony assault charge after attacking an acquaintance last week, according to city police.
Neftali Martinez, 32, of Peekskill, was charged on May 19 at 4:10 a.m. with second-degree assault, a class F felony, on the 200 block of N. Division St. by Police Detective Marcos Martinez.
Officers responded to a report of a man on the ground bleeding from facial injuries, and the 23-year-old unnamed victim was transported to the Westchester Medical Center where he received treatment for his injuries. Police later determined the victim had been assaulted by Martinez, who police described as an acquaintance of the victim.
Martinez was arrested on May 20 without incident and was held for arraignment.

Milton Flores, 43, of Ossining, was arrested on May 25 and charged with driving while intoxicated with a prior conviction in the past 10 years, a class D felony, aggravated unlicensed operation, a class E felony, as well as aggravated driving while intoxicated and operating a vehicle without a mandated interlock device, both misdemeanors. Officer Michael Lawrence observed a vehicle traveling on N. Division St. in violation of several traffic infractions, according to police. A traffic stop was initiated and the vehicle’s operator, Flores, failed numerous field sobriety tests which resulted in his arrest.
