An assault at the American Legion Club in New London has led to a grand jury indictment.

Ronald D. Ohm, 37, of 160B Williams St., New London, was charged with felonious assault in connection with a March 29 incident.

He was one of 14 people indicted Friday by a Huron County grand jury.

New London police investigated the case in which there were two victims, but one of them declined to pursue prosecution. The older man, a 57-year-old New London Township resident, went to Fisher-Titus Medical Center with various injuries after an assault at the American Legion Club.

"He sustained a broken right collarbone, a broken right shoulder and a broken left lower leg," Sgt. Joe Hicks said earlier. "The younger victim refused treatment (at the hospital)."

The two victims were arguing when Ohm "intervened for some reason" and reportedly pushed the older man, police said.
