Teen arrested for injuring man with a screwdriver

A 15-year-old East Delavan Avenue youth was arrested Monday evening after Buffalo police reported seeing him throw a screwdriver into the face of a 58-year-old man who wasn’t related to him and with whom he had been arguing and fighting in a multi-family apartment building in the 1400 block of East Delavan.

Police officers who had been flagged down by another teen and told of the ongoing fight walked into the house and reported witnessing what they described as a “melee” with the teen suspect trying to strike the man and throw a screwdriver that hit the man in his right cheek but did not cut into his skin. The teen suspect was charged with assault in the third-degree and menacing.
