An aggressive panhandler swung a belt at three passersby, after chasing after them, early this morning near Atwood Ave. The belt buckle struck a 43-year-old man in the head, leaving a cut and a significant bump.  A 34-year-old woman fell and skinned her knee after falling while running from the suspect. The arrested man was evidently unhappy about not getting more money from the victims, although one had given him a few dollars.
