Atkinson man charged in assault of woman shoved from truck

SALEM - An Atkinson man is accused of injuring a woman when police say he shoved her out of a truck near Route 111 and Zachary Crossing.

Several witnesses were with the woman, who injured her hand and had several scrapes on her body, when officers arrived on scene just before 10 p.m. Sunday.

The 25-year-old woman, who was not identified in a police news release of the incident, was taken by ambulance to Parkland Medical Center for treatment of her injuries.

The suspect, identified by police as Peter Pratt, 27, of Atkinson, had left the scene, according to investigators.

He was located about 30 minutes later on Route 121A by Atkinson police and taken into custody without incident.

He was transported back to the Salem Police Department where he was booked on a simple assault charge and released on $2,500 personal recognizance bail.
