A laptop and a bag of feces
On Saturday, Feb. 20, police responded to a fight at 10th and Adams streets. There, a man accused his married friend of hitting on his girlfriend.
Police said the boyfriend, Carlo Gesualdi, 37, Guttenberg, allegedly admitted to police that he came to Hoboken to have a fight with the victim. Gesualdi told police that the victim had hit on his girlfriend at a Super Bowl party.
According to the report, Gesualdi called the victim and asked him to come outside to help Gesualdi with a new laptop, still in the box. The victim came outside and when he tried to shake Gesualdi’s hand, Gesualdi allegedly punched him in the face and knocked him to the ground, police said. When the victim got up, Gesualdi allegedly hit him in the face with the boxed laptop, weighing approximately 12 pounds.
While the man was on the ground again, Gesualdi allegedly tore his shirt and attacked him with a barrage of punches and kicks.
Then, according to police, Gesualdi took out a brown paper bag filled with his feces and rubbed it in the victim’s face. Another man from the street broke up the fight.
Gesualdi was charged with aggravated assault, unlawful possession of weapons, and possession of weapons for unlawful purposes.
Throwing snowballs, punches
Police arrested two juveniles for assaulting a Hoboken man after the man took offense to “ice balls” being tossed at his car, police said.
The victim was driving to work on Willow Avenue at 2:44 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 19 when a group of Hoboken juveniles allegedly hit his windshield with multiple “ice balls” at Sixth Street, he told police.
The victim circled the block to admonish the juveniles, and he met one of them at Eighth and Clinton streets.
