A hearing date has been set for Wednesday for two Wrentham selectmen who are each accusing the other of assault.
The alleged incident took place in a men’s room at Town Hall during a break of a June 3 board meeting. Selectman John Zizza told police that fellow board member Robert Cohen “stepped very abruptly” toward him and began shouting, causing Zizza to fear that Cohen would attempt to harm him.
Cohen, in a counter-complaint, told police that Zizza was “hostile and intimidating” and that Cohen feared Zizza would escalate the situation. Neither man is accused of physically attacking the other.
A clerk magistrate at Wrentham District Court will hear the men out in a show-cause hearing at 9:45 a.m. on Wednesday. The clerk magistrate and will then decide whether there is enough evidence for either or both of the men to be formally charged.
