Details

Two downtown residents were punched in the face, and one suffered a chipped tooth, after an angry man got in the face of the 22-year old victim. The two victims were walking with friends in the 400 block of W. Gilman St. early Sunday morning when they encountered the suspect. He had been drinking, and it was not clear why he was mad, but he said something about needing to defend his sister's honor. Members of the MPD's Central District Community Police Team were on routine patrol in the area and came upon the men as they struggled in the roadway. The suspect was arrested on two counts of battery, including a tentative charge of substantial battery. The more serious charge was decided upon because a tooth had been chipped.
