AUSTIN EDITION -- Man says he was kicked, threatened

From staff reports

Austin police say a 25-year-old Austin man could be charged with second-degree assault after he allegedly kicked a 20-year-old man and threatened him with a metal bar.

Austin Police Chief Paul Philipp said officers went to the 600 block of 11th Avenue Northwest at 9:24 p.m. Wednesday when it was reported that a large fight was in progress, but the caller later reported the suspect and some of his friends had left in two pickup trucks.

The victim told officers the suspect and one of the suspect's friends tried to box him in while they were driving. The cars stopped, and the suspect allegedly got out with a jack handle. The two men began to argue, and the suspect allegedly pushed the victim to the ground and kicked him twice in the head.

Police tracked the man and arrested him. The man denied being involved in the incident.
