Police were called to the 1100 block of Cocker
Street on July 1 regarding a fight that broke
out at party. The alleged suspect got into an
argument with a female guest over the way he
treats women. The argument turned physical when
he reportedly punched the woman above the eye,
knocking her to the ground, and continued to
punch her repeatedly in the face until another
woman stepped in. He reportedly punched her
in the face several times, too, before going
back to beating the first victim. The first
victim was transported to the hospital, the
second woman refused, despite obvious injuries,
and the suspect fled before police arrived.
A warrant is out for his arrest, and he’s being
charged with two counts of willful injury.
