Punch reportedly thrown in trespassing dispute in Park Meadows

The Park City Police Department arrested a 32-year-old Park City man on May 12 on a charge of aggravated assault, indicating that the suspect punched another man in a dispute centered on a trespassing claim.

According to the police, the suspect confronted the other man, a 21-year-old, at approximately 2:30 p.m. on May 7. The police said the suspect claimed the other man trespassed on the yard of a friend of the suspect in Park Meadows.

The suspect drove after the other man when he rode away on a bicycle, catching up to him on Little Kate Road. They argued before the suspect punched the other man in the face, causing what the police describe as serious injuries to the face and jaw, according to the Police Department.

A passing driver stopped to help the victim and call the police. A witness provided the police information that led to the arrest.

Formal charges had not been filed by early in the week. The man was booked into the Summit County Jail on May 12. A bail bondsman posted a $10,000 bond for his release the same day.
