Greensburg man assaulted

| Thursday, May 10, 2012, 5:39 a.m.

A Greensburg man who was offered a ride home from a city social club last week was later beaten and robbed by the vehicle's occupants along a roadside in Salem Township.

State police at Kiski Valley reported the incident yesterday, but the assault occurred Sept. 9 between 3:30-4 a.m.

According to police, Michael Dellicatti, 25, was at the Giacomo Matteotti Club, at 116 N. Carpenter Ave., in Greensburg with two men and woman, who then offered him a ride home. The victim accepted and the foursome proceeded north on Route 819 toward Salem.

Approximately a tenth of a mile from Route 22, the driver stopped and ordered Dellicatti to exit the vehicle. Once outside the car, a black male occupant began to punch Dellicatti in the face several times, while a white man took his wallet, which contained an undetermined amount of cash. A white woman was also part of the group but apparently did not participate in the assault.

The suspects' vehicle is described as white with four doors.

Anyone with information about the incident can call state police at 724-727-3434.

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.
