PLATTSBURGH | Four local men are facing assault charges after allegedly attacking four Cadyville residents earlier this year.

James Whitney, Jr., 18, and Jamie Whitney, Sr. of West Chazy; and Julio Bell and Phillip Long, 25, of Plattsburgh, each appeared before Hon. Keith Bruno last month to face charges of gang assault in the first degree and conspiracy in the fourth degree.

Whitney, Sr., 39, faces additional charges of possession of a weapon in the fourth degree and two counts of assault in the second degree. Bell, 43, is also facing an additional charge of assault in the second degree.

According to the Clinton County District Attorney’s Office, all four have pleaded not guilty.

The alleged assault happened on July 15.

An apparent “motorcycle group,” according to the DA, convened near a cul-de-sac in Cadyville and attacked the four residents that lived in the area.

Two of the victims suffered “serious physical injury, requiring medical attention and surgery,” according to a news release from the DA’s office.

An investigation by state police revealed that the four men were aided by over 20 other individuals, according to the DA’s office. An investigation involving the others who were involved is still ongoing.

Whitney, Jr. is being represented by Patrick McFarlin, Whitney, Sr. is being represented by Joseph Mucia, Bell is being represented by Thomas Pickering and Long is being represented by Kerwin Clarke.

All four indicted appeared before Hon. Keith Bruno on Oct. 4.

As of last Friday, Bell was being held on no bail, according to the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office. Whitney, Jr. was never booked, Whitney, Sr. was released on Oct. 4 and Long was released on Oct. 12.

The cases are being prosecuted by District Attorney Andrew Wylie and Assistant District Attorney Jeffrey Stitt.
