Lashed with chain

Two men were arrested after they whipped a third male with a nylon tow chain during a skirmish in Marine Park, police alleged.

Officials said that 32-year-old Rafael Santiago, 16-year-old Patrick Fox and two other males allegedly jumped their victim following a fierce exchange of words at the corner of Fillmore Avenue and Marine Parkway at 11:45 a.m. December 20.

After all of the suspects beat the victim, Santiago allegedly grabbed the tow chain, striking the victim in the back with it, officials said.

The victim limped away from the assault, but was soon taken to an area hospital with injuries to his back and ribs.

Santiago and Fox were taken into custody a short time later, charged with assault in the third degree, menacing, criminal possession of a weapon and harassment.

Their two accomplices were still at large as this paper went to press.
