A Marine stationed at New River in Jacksonville is charged with assaulting four females.
The Onslow County Sheriff's Office says it happened around 2:30 AM Saturday. Deputies responded to a night club on Old Blue Creek Road to investigate the assault.
One female told deputies she and her friends were leaving the club and letting their car warm up. She stated that three guys asked them for a ride and that she and her friends said yes but one of the females was worried about getting in trouble if they were under age, so they asked their age.
It was at that point the woman says 28 year old-Justin Grantham began cursing at them and beating on the vehicle. One of the women got out of the car and that's when she says Grantham punched her and assaulted the others as they got out of the car.
Grantham says he and his friends were walking by, but the girls jumped him and that his two friends ran away.
