Pepper spray defense against alleged assault

In the early evening on March 29, officers were called to Park Avenue after a report came in of a man who allegedly exposed himself to a woman and her child. It also was reported that the woman used pepper spray on the man.

Officers contacted Marvin Charles Jr., 33, who was having difficulty seeing and smelled of pepper spray. Officers spoke to the woman, who said she was with her 2-year-old son when she allegedly saw Charles urinating. As she got closer, he allegedly turned toward her with a raised fist and allegedly grabbed the stroller she was pushing.

The woman told police that at that point, she used pepper spray on Charles and was able to get away. Charles faces charges of fourth-degree assault and disorderly conduct.
