Simple assault

A 45-year-old man was arrested Tuesday evening for hitting a woman in the ribs and throwing his bike at a vehicle. The woman and man she was with called police earlier Tuesday to report Michael Berg, who was approaching children around South Warren Street on his bike and talking with them about drugs. The two adults told Berg to leave, which he did. However, Berg came back later and approached the adults again, striking the woman and throwing his bike. Officers noticed Berg leaving on his bicycle and arrested him for simple assault and criminal mischief.
