Weekend fight leaves one hospitalized, one arrested

The Amherst Police Department announced that early in the morning of last Friday, October 9, police were called to the scene of a fight between North Pleasant Street and Amity Street near downtown.

Upon arrival at the scene, officers found a victim with what Lieutenant Ronald Young described in a statement as “severe facial injuries that are not life threatening.”

 The victim is an unnamed 22-year-old Amherst man, not affiliated with the University of Massachusetts, who sought further medical treatment over the weekend at an undisclosed location.

Further investigation revealed that the victim had been stuck in the face, and then fell to the ground. Two males then allegedly kicked the victim repeatedly in the face while he was on the ground, causing his facial injuries. Police said it is unclear what prompted the incident.

One of the two suspects was located and arrested near the scene. Akeem K. Lavalley, 20, of Hadley, was charged with assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon (in this case, his shoe).

The other assailant is still at large. The Amherst Police Department investigation is ongoing.
