BRIDGEPORT -- A Harral Avenue man who objected to a person defecating on his lawn was assaulted with a milk crate Saturday night.
Elias Ramirez, 30, suffered a cut to his head and elbow after being hit with the black plastic crate allegedly thrown by Gabriel Venegas, 34, of 1169 East Main St., shortly before 10 p.m., police said.
Police arrested Venegas a short distance away and charged him with third-degree assault, second-degree breach of peace and interfering with a police officer. He became uncooperative while in booking and refused to give his name and birth date. That led to the charge of interfering. Bond was set at $10,000.
The incident began when Ramirez saw a man enter his property through a gate, unbuckle his pants and squat on his lawn. The man, later by police identified as Venegas, allegedly picked up a black milk crate and threw it at Ramirez after being ordered off the property, the victim told police.
Venegas was arrested a short distance from Ramirez's home by Police Officer Carlos Vazquez.
