Hopkinton guidance counselor charged with assaulting relative
MANCHESTER — The co-director of guidance at Hopkinton Middle/High School is charged with second-degree assault, accused of punching, kicking and stepping on the neck of an elderly relative after a probate court hearing Friday.
Eugene Fox, 63, of 178 Hillside Drive, Henniker, could enter no plea to the felony charge Monday in 9th Circuit Court, Manchester District Division, so a probable cause hearing was set for May 2.
Fox, who is free on $5,000 cash/surety bail, is accused of accosting his 74-year-old uncle in the Vine Street garage.
The alleged victim told police he was about to get into his car when he noticed Fox staring at his license plate. He said he realized who Fox was when he spoke to him and asked: “How would you like to get beaten up by your nephew that is 20 years younger than you?”
According to court documents, the alleged victim said he didn't want to be beaten up, but said Fox “came at him” and punched him in the ear and the jaw, knocking him down. He said Fox then kicked him in the stomach and chest area and then stepped on his neck and groin.
The victim said when Fox left the garage, he was able to get up and go to the garage office to ask for help. Court documents show an ambulance transported the victim to Catholic Medical Center, where he was treated for abrasions to his head, difficulty breathing and evaluation for other possible injuries, as he reported pain in his head and chest.
Police obtained a warrant for Fox and he was arrested by Henniker Police and transported to the Manchester Police Department, where he was photographed and fingerprinted.
Fox is barred from contact with the alleged victim and barred from his residence in Bethel, Vt.
There was no immediate word on what the probate court case involved.
