Man Allegedly Attacked By Guests In His Home
Criminal trespassing charges have been filed against two individuals who allegedly attacked a Buffalo Valley Road man after he refused to let them stay at his house. The victim told police that he was escorting 19-year-old Robert Joseph Schill of Sparta and 19-year-old Spencer Jordan Wiest of Cookeville out of his home when they allegedly began hitting him in the face, knocking him to the floor. The fight had been broken up by the time police arrived, but they decided to arrest Schill and Wiest, based on the statements of witnesses. They claim Schill resisted arrest and had to be tasered. The victim was taken to the hospital by ambulance for treatment of head injuries and was advised on how to proceed with assault charges if he chose.
