Assault Leaves One Hospitalized; Suspect Charged

One man is in critical condition and another in jail after an incident on the 400 block of Northampton Street Sunday night.

Easton Police say they responded to a report of an unresponsive male at about 12:45 a.m. He was transported to a local hospital where he is in critical condition, they added.

Antonio Ortiz, 33, of the 400 block of Northampton Street, was taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault and reckless endangerment, according to a news release. He was arraigned and committed to Northampton County Prison after failing to post $50,000 straight bail, police added.

The relationship between the Ortiz and the victim is currently unclear. Police have reportedly been unable to interview the victim of the attack due to the severity of his condition.

Witnesses or anyone with any further information about the assault are asked to call Easton police detectives at 610-759-2200.
