---- — SALEM — Police say a local man was arrested on domestic assault charges last night after he assaulted his 11-year-old son.
Steven Nassor, 53, of 33 Upham St., Salem, was charged with two counts of domestic assault and battery on a child with bodily injury.
Nassor was arrested at 6:47 p.m. at 15 Hancock St. in Peabody after Salem police issued a be-on-the-lookout alert following a report of the assault late yesterday afternoon, Peabody police said. According to the alert, Nassor was supposed to be driving a blue 1997 Mercury Cougar registered to a man who lived at that address.
Salem police said Nassor would likely be spending the weekend at the police station.
