A 22-year-old man was arrested for allegedly assaulting his grandfather over a disagreement regarding access to a television set Thursday morning in Rancho El Dorado.
Maricopa Police Department spokesman Sgt. Hal Koozer said the suspect, Dorin Martinez, is accused of physically assaulting his 73-year-old grandfather at the home they share near the 42000 block of Bunker Drive around 9:54 a.m. on Jan. 25.
“The grandpa locked the TV up, and the grandchild wanted it,” Koozer said.
The victim received a laceration to his face, but declined transportation to the hospital after being treated on scene by Maricopa Fire/Medical Department, according to MPD.
Koozer said no weapons were involved in the physical assault.
Police arrested Martinez and will forward a domestic violence assault charge to Pinal County Attorney’s Office.
