A Northern Westchester man has been charged with allegedly punching a man in the face while the victim was holding an infant.

Jason J. Galea, age 32, of Ossining, was arrested following the incident which took place around 9:30 p.m., Monday, Nov. 29 in Yorktown.

Officers were sent to a report of an assault in progress at a Yorktown residence, said the Yorktown Police.

An investigation found Galea injured a man by punching him in the face with a closed fist while he was holding the infant in his arms.
