Suspect arrested for striking man in retaliation

A 37-year-old Northumberland Avenue man was arrested Monday evening and charged with striking a man with his fist as the victim walked out of a Fillmore Avenue restaurant about two weeks ago.

Police said the incident apparently was in retaliation for an earlier dispute between the two men.

Charles Stephens Jr. was charged with third-degree assault and harassment for allegedly confronting the victim and striking him outside a restaurant in the 2000 block of Fillmore Avenue about 11:30 p.m. March 6.
