Two Charged in Assaults

Wed, 01/25/2023 - 16:23

A house on Queen’s Lane in East Hampton was the scene of two assaults on the night of Jan. 7, allegedly perpetrated by men with the same last name. East Hampton Town police did not spell out their relationship, if any.

Manuel Namina-Maza, 37, reportedly a resident of the house, punched an unidentified woman in the face and kicked her in the stomach and legs, causing “substantial pain,” East Hampton Town police said. Mr. Namina-Maza faces a charge of misdemeanor assault.

So does the other man, Ruben Namina-Maza, 39, of Warwick Lane in East Hampton. Police said he grabbed someone — the report does not say if it was the same person — “around the neck with two hands and squeezed, making it difficult to breathe,” and the victim suffered “substantial pain” that required medical attention. Ruben Namina was charged with a second misdemeanor assault for dragging the victim by the hair across the floor.
