Cumberland City Police officers Friday responded to a South Allegany Street residence in reference to a reported assault.  Upon arrival to the scene, officers located the victim in this case, and observed bleeding injuries.  The victim told officers that they had been assaulted by a family member and identified the suspect as Nelson Owen Williams, 41 of Cumberland.  Williams had already left the residence prior to officers arriving on the scene.  A short time later officers received a disturbance complaint in the Greene Street area and when they arrived they located Williams and found him to be involved in this disturbance.  As a result of these investigations, Williams was placed under arrest and transported to the Cumberland City Police Department where he was charged with the following:

Assault Second Degree – 1 count

After processing, Williams was taken before an Allegany County District Court Commissioner for a bond hearing.  Williams was held at the Allegany County Detention Center on a $3000.00 bond.
