July 12, 2011

An argument between co-workers over what they listened to on the radio resulted in one man attacking another, according to a town of Brookfield police report.

Also in the report:

The 19-year-old victim was working on a car in the service department at Lexus of Brookfield, 20001 W. Bluemound Road, when he was attacked by a 22-year-old co-worker on June 22.

Witnesses said the 22-year-old blindsided the victim with punches to the face and head.

The victim told police that he and the 22-year-old had an argument on June 17 over Salsa music that was on the radio.

The 22-year-old pushed the victim and threatened to fight with him after work because he said he was tired of listening to Salsa music.

A manager sent the 22-year-old home after the altercation and terminated his employment on June 22; about 10 minutes prior to the attack.

The victim said he recently had facial reconstruction surgery because of injuries suffered in a car crash and feared his jaw may have been broken in the attack.

The 22-year-old was cited for disorderly conduct and battery.
