Confectioner charged with assault by girl, 15 employed in store

This story was published by The Ypsilanti Daily Press on Tuesday, July 16, 1912. Irene Doyle, aged 15 preferred a serious charge against George Goutziaman, a Greek confectioner, of the Michigan Candy Works, 106 W. Congress Street (now Michigan Ave.) this morning. She commenced work in the candy store Sunday and claims that she had not been there long when Goutziaman attacked her. She was questioned by local officers but failed to present sufficient evidence to substantiate the charge. A warrant was issued however charging Goutziaman with assault and battery. He was arraigned before Justice Stadtmiller and entered a plea of not guilty. His trial was set for July 24.
