By Patrick Sullivan | July 3, 2018

A homeless man who attacked another homeless man was arrested for assault.

Two men were sitting near the Union Street dam when they were approached by the suspect, who started yelling at them and punched one of them in the face, causing an injury that required medical attention. The incident was reported to police at 9:45pm Saturday and when officers arrived, there was no sign of the suspect.

At midnight, someone called police about a man covered in blood at the BATA station on Hall Street and when officers arrived, they recognized the 38-year-old man as the suspect from the Union Street dam assault and arrested him for aggravated assault, says Traverse City Police Chief Jeff O’Brien.
