32-year-old Mahdi Abbas had an altercation with his neighbor, Tommie Pearson, at the apartments on Lester Avenue in the early hours of December 30th. Pearson reported that a loud banging on his door woke him up, and when he opened it, Abbas confronted him, shouting angrily. He said he didn’t know why Abbas was upset and closed the door. Then, shortly after, Abbas banged on the door again and threw a bible at Pearson’s head once Pearson opened the door. Pearson said his face was sore but uninjured and refused medical assistance. Pearson noted that Abbas had acted like this towards other residents in the building before and was frightened at the possibility of a further assault, so he called the police. Officers spoke with both parties when they arrived and observed Abbas to be visibly intoxicated. They were unable to get a clear statement from him regarding the incident. Pearson advised that he wished to prosecute, and Mahdi Abbas was taken into custody for assault.
