Following two large fights on Tuesday, law enforcers said a 24-year-old man has been charged with hitting a woman with a shovel.
Police said Kendell L. Savage, of 606 Parry St., was involved in a large fight in the parking lot of JoJo’s Market in the 600 block of W. Dominick St. at about 11:15 a.m. Tuesday. Police said there were several men yelling and shoving each other.
Police said no injuries were reported and no one wanted to press charges after the fight was broken up.
An hour later, police said Savage was involved in another fight about three blocks away in the 300 block of Kossuth St. Police said two groups were fighting each other, and Savage struck a woman in the arm with a metal shovel.
Savage is charged with one count of third-degree assault, a misdemeanor, authorities said. He is scheduled to appear in City Court.
