Lyons man faces felony assault, weapons charges after investigation into two groups fighting on street corner

The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Lyons man following an investigation into an assault.

Emmanuel Montanez, age 24, of Lyons, was recently arrested for second-degree assault and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon.


The arrest stems from an incident that happened in November, when two groups of people met at the intersection of Broad and Water streets in Lyons for a physical altercation.

During that fight Montanez used a blunt object to strike a male multiple times in the head, causing the victim to sustain multiple lacerations.

The man was transported to Newark Wayne Community Hospital for treatment.

After being taken into custody, Montanez was brought to the Wayne County Jail for arraignment.
