Seagate smack

A handyman attacked a Seagate resident with a wrench on May 13 after the victim complained about the 35-year-old’s craftsmanship.

Police said that suspect John Balestire was inside the victim’s apartment on Neptune Avenue, which is near Seagate Avenue, at 6 pm when the younger man lodged his complaint.

During the ensuing argument, Balestire picked up a wrench and struck the tenant in the head, face and hands, leaving him with deep cuts that required stitches.

Balestire was arrested on May 26 after a brief investigation.
