ELMA: Man arrested for alleged assault in court

A 62-year-old Elma man was arrested after allegedly chasing another man around the Juvenile Detention Center in Aberdeen while slapping him and throwing things, according to The Daily World of Aberdeen.

Capt. John Green with the Aberdeen Police Department said officers received a report of a heavily tattooed man chasing a man in a black suit through the center’s parking lot.

“They were just running around outside,” Green said.

Police weren’t identifying the man.

Witnesses told police the altercation started just after 2 p.m. Monday over a domestic case and disputes between the two men over how their children should be treated.

Green said the man was booked on suspicion of fourth-degree misdemeanor assault.
