POMEROY — A Rutland man has been indicted on a single count of felonious assault in connection with an alleged incident on May 26.

Brewce W. Martin, 51, of Hutton Road, Rutland, was indicted on Wednesday on the second-degree felony charge.

According to the indictment, Martin is alleged to have caused or attempted to cause physical harm to another using a white station wagon.

According to a sheriff’s office report of the incident, Deputy Chris Jones was called to investigate a report of an assault that took place at Taz’s Marathon. The victim reported that he was walking back to his car when Martin allegedly threatened him and then tried to run over him with his car. The victim was able to get into his vehicle just before his vehicle was reportedly struck by Martin’s vehicle. Martin then fled the scene. The victim’s car received significant damage from the incident.

An arraignment date for Martin has not been set.
