Homeless Man Arrested After Attack

Dec. 15, 2015

A resident of a Garfield Township homeless camp is accused of choking another homeless man to near-unconsciousness.

Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s deputies were called to a “tent city” off of Keystone Road near the Goodwill Inn to investigate an assault early Sunday afternoon, says Lt. Christopher Barsheff.

The 46-year-old suspect and 52-year-old alleged victim were drinking together when they argued about a debt owed to the suspect. As the older man attempted to leave, the suspect sucker punched him, threw him to the ground, and used his arm to choke him, letting up just before he passed out, Barsheff says.

The victim went to the Goodwill Inn and asked for police.
