An East Camden barber, charged with assault and battery on a neighbor’s son, was acquitted in Criminal Court by a jury before Judge Samuel M. Shay yesterday.

He is Nicola Saccomanno, of 3418 Federal street, charged with beating Paul Agnew, of 3408 Federal street.

Mrs. Elizabeth Agnew, the boy’s mother, lodged a complaint against Saccomanno, charging he attacked the boy, who was playing on the street near Saccomanno’s shop.

The woman said Saccomanno struck her son, knocked him down and then kicked him. Saccomanno denied the charge and testified the boy fell when he attempted to run away from the scene.
