FORT EDWARD -- A Glens Falls man who is on parole for robbery has been jailed for allegedly beating and seriously injuring a registered sex offender, police said.
Brandon S. Salmans, 29, was charged with second-degree assault in connection with a late November incident in which he is accused of walking up to a Third Avenue man and punching him in the face, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.
He is accused of hitting Leonard McFall as McFall was on the front porch of his home. He suffered a broken nose and broken facial orbital bone that required surgery, police said.
McFall, 54, is a Level 3 sex offender because of a 2004 conviction for first-degree sexual abuse stemming from a sexual assault of a 10-year-old girl.
Salmans, who lives on Hudson Street, is acquainted with the family of the victim in the sex case, and attacked McFall because of his sexual abuse of the acquaintance, officials said.
Police located Salmans in Glens Falls and arrested him on Dec. 23. He was arraigned and sent to Washington County Jail for lack of bail.
Salmans served more than 7 years of a 10-year prison sentence for a 2006 liquor store robbery in Glens Falls. He was released from prison on Nov. 1 and is on parole. ..Source.. by PostStar.com
