Middlebury Police Log: Massachusetts man cited for simple assault

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police cited a 20-year-old Massachusetts man for simple assault, stemming from an alleged incident on Middlebury College campus on April 7. Police said the man is scheduled to be arraigned on April 23. (Editor’s note: The man’s name is not published here because he successfully completed Court Diversion.) 
In other action last week, Middlebury police:
•  Responded to a report of someone destroying a campsite off Route 7 on April 3. Police investigated the campsite and determined it was on town property and thus had to be moved.
