Comments () A Text Size

Officers responded to a report of an aggravated assault after a man allegedly struck another in the head with a tire iron in the 2200 block of North Carroll Boulevard on Wednesday night.

Police said the victim, a 57-year-old man, alleged he saw a man he worked with assaulting a woman, when he tried to intervene. The victim slapped the 53-year-old man on the face as he raised his hand to hit the woman, according to the report.

Officials said the three separated, and as the 57-year-old was walking out of the bathroom, the other man stuck him twice on the head with a tire iron. The 57-year-old said he would file charges.

Reports show the girlfriend had bruises and cuts on her arm and told police she would file charges.

After further investigation, police said the suspect was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and assault family violence.
