Derry men charged with assaulting one another over noise
Derry police charged a 26-year-old man with using brass knuckles to injure a neighbor during an argument that erupted Sunday over noise in an apartment house.
Kirk Lee Fabiszewski was arraigned Monday on charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, possession of prohibited offensive weapons and disorderly conduct in connection with an altercation at 7:15 a.m. at an apartment house at 422 N. Chestnut Street.
Police said Fabiszewski assaulted Randy Lee Wilson, 31, who lives in another apartment, after Wilson complained to Fabiszewski that he was “too loud” overnight.
Wilson alleged that Fabiszewski “launched” himself at Wilson when he descended a stairwell, striking Wilson multiple times with brass knuckles he was wearing, according to an affidavit filed by borough Patrolman Clinton McChesney.
McChesney reported that Famiszewki claimed Wilson struck him first. Wilson was charged with simple assault, via mailed summons.
According to the affidavit, medical officials told McChesney that it took several sutures to close three lacerations on his head and “it was unreasonable to believe a bare fist had caused such an injury.”
Fabiszewski was ordered to the Westmoreland County Prison by Derry District Judge Mark Bilik after failing to post $10,000 bond.
