Newark Post - - POLICE BLOTTER -

A man punched a woman in the face af­ter she re­buffed his at­tempt to dance with her, po­lice said.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened at around 1 a.m. Sun­day at the Deer Park Tav­ern, 108 W. Main St., ac­cord­ing to Lt. An­drew Ru­bin, a spokesman for the Ne­wark Po­lice De­part­ment.

The vic­tim was danc­ing on the sec­ond floor of the bar when the man ap­proached and at­tempted to dance with her. She told him she didn’t want to dance with him, and he walked away.

A few min­utes later, he ap­proached the vic­tim again and put his hand on her shoul­der, Ru­bin said. She pushed his hand away, and he punched her in the face.

A fight en­sued, and bounc­ers broke up the fra­cas.

The woman was not in­jured, Ru­bin said.

The sus­pect was de­scribed as a His­panic man with a large build. He was wear­ing a black T-shirt and a base­ball hat.
