A male in Raritan Borough, New Jersey has been accused of shoving his hand inside a cop’s mouth and tugging on the policeman’s jaw. (1,1,1) The man allegedly responsible for the bizarre assault, 29-year-old Kareem Boyd was arrested on a recent Sunday, after officers were sent to a private home for a child custody argument.
He is now facing charges of aggravated assault and resisting arrest. Everything seemed to unfold after cops arrived for the custody dispute and pulled Boyd aside in an attempt to interview him.
That’s when the suspect became loud, angry and violent towards responding officers. When a policeman tried to cuff him, Boyd turned around and carried out the assault.
The court affidavit detailed the incident noting that Boyd “reached inside Patrolman Ryan Steier’s mouth and pulled on his jaw”. The cop received lacerations in his mouth and was forced to get stitches.
Boyd is now sitting in Somerset County Jail. His bail has been set at over $17,000.
