Brutal bashing

Police arrested a 23-year-old accused of bashing a man inside a W. Ninth Street cigarette and tobacco shop on Jan. 17.

The suspect grabbed a man from behind inside the store between Court and Clinton streets at 6:15 pm, threw him to ground, and punched him in the head multiple times, investigators say.

The suspect — who faces charges of assault, menacing, and harassment — then kicked the victim in the head, causing the victim an immense amount of pain, according documents from the District Attorney’s office.

Threatened to kill

An 18-year-old suspect was arrested for threatening to kill her relative with a knife inside a Centre Mall residence on Oct. 25, investigators claim.

The victim was in the apartment between Clinton and Henry streets at 10:40 am when the suspect picked up a knife, pointed it in the direction of the victim and said, “If you ever disrespect mommy again, I am going to kill you,” according to documents from the District Attorney’s office.
