EVANS MILLS A Philadelphia man was arrested by state police early Friday in connection with a bar fight in which another man suffered a fractured skull.
Stephen C. Stroman, 25, Eagle Ridge Apartments, is charged with second-degree assault. He was released without bail by town of Watertown Justice David A. Renzi and awaits grand jury action.
The victim, John R. Bartle, 25, Philadelphia, was taken to Samaritan Medical Center, Watertown, and was transferred to Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, where no information about his condition was available.
Court documents indicate that Mr. Bartle was punched in the jaw at 12:45 a.m. Friday in the Last Call Bar and Grill, 8700 Noble St., which caused him to strike his head while falling.
