Fight leads to 2 arrests

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — WILSON — Two residents of the Dorwood Mobile Home Park in Wilson were arrested following an altercation involving several people at a man's home Saturday night.

Robert L. Gualano, 47, 857 B St. faces an assault charge while a 17-year-old C St. resident was charged with harassment as a result of the 11 p.m. incident.

It is at least the second time in less than six months that deputies have made multiple arrests stemming from an altercation at the address.

Patrol responded Saturday to 857 B Street on a report of a fight and found all the participants were separated upon their arrival. The teen was located at his 852 C street residence and had a head injury.

The teen told deputies that he was in a physical altercation with Gaulano at 857 B St. According to the teenager, Gaulano's wife confronted him while he was walking by the residence and asked about where her daughter was staying. Gualano ran out of his residence and tackled him to the ground, the teen added.

The teen said he and Gualano wrestled in the yard until he was able to get free and run home, where he told his father and brother what happened. The three then returned to Gualano's home. According to the report, the teenager said as they entered the porch, Gualano came onto the porch and struck him in the head with a wooden club, causing him to fall backwards.

Deputies requested an ambulance for evaluation and EMS crews transported the teenager to Eastern Niagara Hospital-Newfane for further treatment.

Gualano told deputies that he was sitting on his couch when he heard the teen yelling and swearing at his wife. Gualano said he came out to tell the teen to leave but the teen pushed him. Gualano stated that he pushed the teenager back, who then went home, but came back with his father.
