A Veguita man reported at 5:47 p.m. that he had been battered by another man at his residence. The victim was intoxicated at the time of his report, and stated that he got into an argument with the suspect and the suspect struck him with a belt. The officer met with the suspect who stated that he got into an argument with the victim, and the victim came at him in an aggressive manner, holding a kitchen knife and threatening to kill him and/or batter him. The suspect took the knife away and placed in back in the kitchen. He then told the victim he would not let him batter him anymore and took off his belt and struck the victim with it.
