Police Charge Cross River Man With Beating His Father

LEWISBORO, N.Y. – Police arrested and charged a 22-year-old Cross River man last week for allegedly beating his father.

Lewisboro police were called to a residence on Boutonville Road where they found the father with wounds on his forehead and complaining that his arm may be broken. He told officers he had been beaten up by his son, Kyle Friedman.

Police that Friedman was still verbally abusive and threatened his father in their presence and did not obey their commands to stop. Officers reported that Friedman appeared to be intoxicated and that he admitted to drinking beer. Family members said they had a history of problems.

Officers made several attempts to calm Friedman down with the assistance of his mother with no success. Lewisboro police officers then handcuffed Friedman and handed him over to the custody of the state police.
