Man beats another with a hammer at rooming house

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) A man has been arrested for attacking his rooming house neighbor with a hammer.

The Stamford Advocate reports 36-year-old Rocael Perez-Godoy allegedly attacked a 47-year-old man in the house's common kitchen.

Police arrived Tuesday night to find a man washing blood off his face. The man said Perez-Godoy randomly walked into the kitchen and began hitting him with the hammer, striking him in the face and head.

Perez-Godoy says he was upset because the man was talking about him to his friends. The victim was treated for facial fractures.
