Youth cut as bottle is hurled into truck

A 16-year-old Arnold youth was cut under the left eye and ear and on the bridge of his nose Sunday night when a glass bottle was hurled through the partially open, passenger-side window of a 1989 Nissan truck in which he was riding, county police said yesterday.

The incident happened about 10:30 p.m. as Jason Ashley Ward of Dogwood Road was riding in the truck with his father, Donald Wayne Ward, 43, who was driving, and a friend, Gregory Swartz, 17, of Belledona Court in Arnold.

When the truck stopped at the intersection of Joyce Lane and Church Road, two men stepped out from behind a sign and one of them threw the bottle.
