NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - A central New Jersey sheriff’s officer accused of assaulting a woman now faces weapons charges.

The Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office says 47-year-old Neil Raciti of Milltown is charged with possession of an assault weapon and possession of a high-capacity magazine.

Police say they found an assault rifle with the trigger mechanism removed and nine loaded magazine clips in Raciti’s home. Officials say Raciti was charged because he had failed to properly register the weapon.

The Middlesex County sheriff’s officer was charged on Sunday with aggravated assault stemming from an attack that sent a woman to a hospital with a fracture.

Raciti was off-duty at the time.



Raciti has served in the sheriff’s office for 14 years.

It’s not known if he has a lawyer who can comment on the charges.
