Norfolk man arrested on assault, mischief charges
A report of a physical altercation Saturday afternoon led to the arrest of a Norfolk man for second-degree assault and other charges.
Capt. Mike Bauer with the Norfolk Police Division said officers were called to a residence in the 1100 block of West Prospect Avenue at 12:59 p.m.
Arriving officers leaned that Timothy D. Payne, 55, had come to the residence and become involved in a verbal argument with an adult male resident.
The argument escalated, and Payne placed the male victim in a headlock and struck the victim in the face with his fist several times before pushing him into a storm door, Bauer said.
This resulted in the glass breaking from the storm door, and Payne took the opportunity of being close to the ground to slam the victim’s face and head into the ice-covered concrete several times, Bauer said.
The victim sustained a significant cut just below his left eye as well as abrasions to his head and neck.
The victim went to Faith Regional Health Services for treatment.
Payne was arrested for second-degree assault and cited for disturbing the peace and criminal mischief. He was housed in the Norfolk City Jail and later transferred to the Madison County Jail.
