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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
