NIAGARA FALLS

Man beaten by girlfriend, her sons

Falls police were called to the ER at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center Tuesday night to meet up with the victim of an assault.

The victim, a 48-year-old Falls man, told police he had gotten into an argument with his girlfriend Monday night and she hit and scratched him as he tried to leave the home. Police said she left marks that were photographed for evidence.

The man said he left the home and walked to a liquor store, bought a bottle of vodka and as he left the liquor store, his girlfriend's three sons, ages 14 to 16, attacked him.

The man said he was punched and kicked and knocked to the ground. Her three sons then grabbed the bottle of vodka and left the area.

Police said the man had a swollen jaw, broken blood vessels in his right eye and he complained of pain in his back and left side of his ribs.

The man said he didn't know the names of the three youths that attacked him, but they were definitely sons of his girlfriend.
