Arraignment Set For Man Charged With Assault

A November 22nd court date has been set for a Cookeville man, charged with assault -- for allegedly touching the private parts of a 19-month-old boy.  21-year-old Jay Tylor Iceman of West 17th Street was reportedly bathing with the child, who is the son of a friend of his.  According to a warrant taken out by Detective Bobby Anderson, the child's mother claims that Iceman touched the boy inappropriately while the two were in the bath together.  The assault charge stems from a part of the definition of assault, which includes touching that "a reasonable person would regard ... as extremely offensive or provocative."
