Kidnapping charge dropped, assault sticks

A Chester County man will serve time for an attempted assault charge stemming from incidents occurring on Aug. 21.
According to reports released by the Martin Police Department, on Aug. 21 Ptl. John Cross responded to 106 Murphy Dr. in Martin in reference to an assault that had occurred.
Upon Cross’s arrival, he made contact with two victims and observed that one of the victims had several lacerations to his torso and head, specifically in his nose and ears. The incident report went on to say that the other victim had lacerations to her face and arms.
Cross then summoned Martin Fire Department and EMS to the scene to treat the victims and through further investigation determined that the suspect was a white male by the name of “Drew” driving a silver Mercedes in the company of a white female who witnessed the assaults on Murphy Drive. According to the report, upon Cross’s arrival on the scene, the white male and the white female had left the scene.
Cross was later advised by Ptl. Guy Pryor that the man named as “Drew” was identified as Dustin Boleyn.
Pryor went on to say that he took a statement from a victim who admitted that Boleyn “tried to choke me out and I had a hard time getting away because I started to black out, but I did finally get away.” Due to the severity of the assault and the state of the victim, Cross took out an aggravated assault warrant for the arrest of Boleyn.
Later on in the same day, a separate report stated that Cross was dispatched to Cadillac’s Bar on Church Street in reference to an assault. The report stated that at that time, Cross was unable to make contact with either the victim or the offender, Boleyn. Pryor later made contact with the victim at the Martin Police Department. Through investigation by Pryor, the victim completed a statement in which he admitted, “Around 2 a.m. on the morning of Saturday, Aug. 21, I was standing on the south end of the bar at Cadillac’s.” The victim went on to state that as he was talking to someone in the bar, he was “struck in the right eye by Dustin Boleyn” and was knocked unconscious.
“When I came to,” he continued, “I was being kicked in the head by Mr. Boleyn. This series of events made me fear for my life. When Mr. Boleyn quit kicking me he ran out the south exit door and left.”
In Weakley County Circuit Court Thursday morning, Boleyn entered a guilty plea to the attempted assault charge and was given the sentence of 11 months and 29 days with 222 days jail credit to run concurrent with a Chester County charge. A second charge of aggravated kidnapping was dismissed.
