ROBBINSVILLE, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey police officer
is undergoing a psychiatric exam after he was accused of attacking a woman in a
wheelchair and her 4-year-old son while on duty.
Authorities say Robbinsville Police Sgt. Mark Lee broke into the woman's
apartment at a home that serves people with disabilities on Monday evening.
The Mercer County Prosecutor's Office says Lee assaulted the 45-year-old
woman and her son in a bathroom.
Officials say the officer broke into a bedroom, where the woman and boy had
fled with a caretaker. Officials say Lee knocked the woman from her wheelchair
and again assaulted her.
Authorities say the 18-year veteran of the department kicked out a window to
escape from a police vehicle before he was recaptured.
Lee is charged with aggravated assault and other charges.
