Wellington brothers indicted on assault charges


ELYRIA — Two Wellington brothers have been indicted on felonious assault charges for allegedly attacking a motorist who had stopped when he saw them fighting.

Larry Sugaski has said he was driving by when he saw Thomas Denes Jr. and Todd Denes fighting in a front yard and stopped to ask if they needed help. They reportedly told him to mind own business, and Sugaski left.

But he has said the brothers threw rocks at his truck before getting in their own vehicle and following him.

Once at Findley State Park, Sugaski has said he stopped his car and got out to talk with the brothers. He said they then assaulted him.

Sugaski was treated at a hospital for a concussion following the attack.

In addition to the felonious assault charge, Todd Denes is charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle in connection with the Jan. 15 incident.
