Inquirer staff report:
A 67-year-old man has been charged with injuring the grandson of Langhorne’s mayor in a golf club attack, a newspaper reports this morning.
The Intelligencer said the alleged assailant believed the 16-year-old victim, who required hospital treatment for a head fracture Saturday, had hit a golf ball through a window of his Middletown home.
But police say the victim did not hit the ball and indicated two other teens, including the victim’s brother, were the responsible parties, the newspaper said.
Charged with assault and other offenses is Charles Kascinski, the report said.
“I am one irate grandfather,” Langhorne Mayor Chris Blaydon told the Intelligencer. “My grandson is an A student at Neshaminy High School and plays basketball for the school and soccer for Langhorne Athletic Association. My grandson had nothing to do with it.”
“He could have killed my grandson. He had to go through two CT scans and luckily, there was no blood in the brain,” Blaydon said.
