Bristol man charged with felony assault


HOPKINTON — A Bristol man was charged with felony assault on a person older than 60, causing an injury after an incident Sunday at the Whispering Pines Campground.

Robert Major, 35, was also charged with two misdemeanor counts of domestic disorderly conduct and domestic vandalism and/or malicious injury to property following a late-night 911 call to Hopkinton police reporting a disturbance at the Sawmill Road site.

Police said when they responded to the camp, they found two people “holding down” Major, the alleged aggressor in an altercation with a 72-year-old man. Major was detained in a police cruiser while police checked on the “elderly gentleman” laying on the ground being attended by paramedics and fire personnel.

Police reported the man “was conscious and alert” but appeared to be in pain. The injured man, who said he was struck with the door of the camper by Major and fell, was ultimately taken by Hope Valley Ambulance to Kent Hospital in Warwick for treatment and was released.

Major was arraigned before Justice of the Peace Joseph Scott and was issued a no-contact order with his girlfriend. He is scheduled to appear in 4th Division District Court in Wakefield on Nov. 6.
