Obscenities, punches lead to July 4th injuries
The fireworks on Monday, July 4, were not solely in the sky. A Birmingham police officer met with two individuals at the front desk of the police department to take an assault and battery report, after an angry man approached a group in the parking lot of 33238 Woodward Avenue, and yelled at them before punching a victim in the face.
The two men who came into the police department reported that they were in a group hanging in a parking lot. They said an angry individual approached them yelling about rocks that he said had hit his vehicle from another vehicle driving by. The men said obscenities were exchanged, and the angry individual, who was described as a white male with short hair, punched one of the victims in the face before leaving the scene.
The injured victim went to a nearby hospital to have his injuries evaluated.
Birmingham police were able to locate the suspect. An investigation is ongoing.
