Man charged with sexual battery

FRONT ROYAL — The Front Royal Police Department arrested a Bentonville man and charged him with one count of sexual battery after he allegedly sexually assaulted his cab driver.

Dean Haughey, 64, was arrested on Aug. 8 when a woman told police that her cab driver had grabbed and pulled her breast, the criminal complaint states. The woman identified Haughey at Two Fat Butchers on South Street in Front Royal. When the arresting officer approached Haughey, he admitted to touching the victim’s breast.

“When asked why he did it,” the complaint alleges, “he stated he did because he wanted to.”

Haughey is out on bond. His next hearing is scheduled for Aug. 22 in Warren County General District Court.
