Two Larchmont teens were arrested after the beating of a third young man on St. Patrick’s Day in a New York City Theatre District bar, according to the New York Post.
Gerard McMullin, 17, and Bertram Spielvogel, 18, were charged with assault.
“The teens, who hail from Larchmont in Westchester County, got into a staredown with Ben Gold, 23, … Spielvogel grabbed a glass bottle and smashed Gold over the head,” according to the report.
McMullin joined the fray, pummeling Gold, according to the court records. Gold, of Haverstraw, was rushed to NYU Hospital, where he received stitches to close a head gash.
A Midtown North cop hauled the two teens into the station house,where, it turned out, the Commanding Officer is McMullin’s cousin.
McMullin was charged with misdemeanor assault, and Spielvogel felony assault.
