3000 block E. Washington Ave.


     A dispute over a shared bathroom led to a battery where a victim was struck multiple times in the head with a bathroom scale.
     That's what an injured man told responding officers yesterday after he suffered head cuts, and a possible broken nose, inside his E. Washington Ave. apartment building. He said another resident, a man with whom he's been having the bathroom feud, showed up at his door with a second suspect. The victim said the second suspect battered him with the scale while his neighbor punched him. 
     Bathroom cleanliness and electric bills are said to at the bottom of the conflict. The victim and his neighbor have their own apartments, but not their own bathrooms.  
     Officers were not able to immediately locate the suspects.
