CELORON – Two parents and their 18-year-old son are facing charges after an assault of a 12-year-old in the Village of Celoron this week.
Town of Ellicott Police say 35-year-old Thomas Stingel, 33-year-old Shelley Stingel and 18-year-old Corey Stingel were arrested on Tuesday.
It is alleged that Thomas and Shelley Stingel drove their three children, two juveniles and the 18-year-old to an address on East Lake Street in the village to fight a 12-year-old.
Police allege Corey Stingel and a juvenile male assaulted the youth.
The family was not at the scene when officers arrived to break up the fight.
Arrest warrants were later issued and the three Stingels were located in Falconer and taken into custody. They are charged with third-degree assault, fifth-degree conspiracy and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
The three, police say, were taken to the Chautauqua County Jail and held prior to arraignment.
Police say the 12-year-old suffered a black eye.
