WATERLOO -- CNY Central has confirmed that Waterloo Village Judge Roger W. Barto has been hospitalized since Friday after being attacked outside the Village Hall.


According Waterloo Judge Dean Mattoon, Barto was attacked as he was locking up the building at 10:00 p.m. Friday night.


Mattoon says Barto had just completed an arraignment, but he does not feel the assault was related to the arraignment.


Mattoon says Judge Barto was struck on the head from behind with the lid of a toilet tank that had been placed outside the building during renovations. Mattoon says Barto was also choked by his assailant.


Judge Barto was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester where he is currently listed in guarded condition.


The Waterloo Police Department is working with the New York State Police on the investigation. Mattoon says he believes the Seneca County District Attorney's Office is also involved.


Mattoon says that to his knowledge there have been no arrests.

The Waterloo Police Department would neither confirm nor deny the incident.

What! The Waterloo Police Department would neither confirm nor deny the incident. It did or did not happen. What kind of reply is that?

It did happen and authority will not comment on and ongoing investigation.

The crazies are coming out of the woodwork.

The Forums will get lots of views with this one as the locals are paranoid as it is.

I hope Roger gets well soon and can describe the men who did this.

Being knocked out one doesn't remember to much of the incident
that took place. Roger is a very strong person and will be back home soon.
God Bless

My guess is he was caught totally off guard and wouldn't have had time to enlist the help of Smith & Wesson anyway.

Wishing him a speedy, full recovery and hope the authorities catch these crazy, scumbags quickly.

Village hall on Main St or Town hall on Virginia St?

I also hope that they catch the sleeze bags that did this.

Speedy recovery Roger.

Maybe, but Smitty & Wesson can't really help you when someone sneaks up from behind and knocks you out.

How could this have happened right next door to a police station?

Oh that's the right, the doors are always locked and there is never anyone there! Our tax dollars at work.

Maybe now the mayor will give the police department the resources it needs.

Hind sight is always 20 / 20; unfortunately. This a problem and it needs to be solved and people protected.

Keep positive thoughts for Judge Barto and in our prayers.

You really can't figure this one out Joe Bob? Think REAAAALLLLYYY hard now. Maybe if the town rent a cops ever actually worked over night and not 9-5 they would have been there to stop this. We have a village police department that stands locked and deserted most of the time. What kind of police department is that?

I must agree on that one.
I pray the law gets them before a family member does. Roger comes from a huge family. Never know who is related to whom these days. "Hell is coming"
