NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. (WKTV) - Two people are facing charges following a dispute outside Mitsuba Japanese Restaurant on Seneca Turnpike.

It was just before Noon on Thursday, June 28 when officers responded to a report that there was an altercation in front of the restaurant between a male and female. When they arrived on scene, officers found the male, John R. Saupp, 21, and the female, Elizabeth C. Mosher, 19. While officers were on scene, they say that another female that was with Saupp during the altercation came back to the scene at Mitsuba.
