Maneater: Hall bitten by Oates

Roger Oates, 48, and Ronald Mantz, 53, were both charged with felony assault, resisting arrest and obstructing official business.

Erie County deputies responded to the 13400 block of Arlington Road at about 9 p.m. to investigate an assault.

“It appeared that (the victim’s) eyebrow was almost completely bitten off,” a deputy’s report said. “Blood was flowing from the wound.”

The victim, Scott Hall, 40, told deputies he was watching football in his garage when he saw headlights in his driveway. He went outside to find his drunken neighbor, Oates, and Oates’ drunken friend, Mantz, getting out of a car, the report said.  

“Scott advised (Oates) almost immediately charged at him in a ‘bull rush’ fashion,” the report said.
