Homeless Man Hits Framingham Man With Hot Frying Pan
A homeless man smashed a Framingham man in the head with a hot frying pan on Friday, denting the metal cooking tool, a prosecutor said Monday in Framingham District Court.
Joseph D. Spencer, 25, claimed he was defending himself from the man, who attacked him for cooking his food without permission, Spencer’s lawyer, Dan Cappetta argued during his client’s arraignment.
On Friday, at 8:50 p.m., police went to 10 Richardson Circle, on call about a family problem. A woman who answered the door assured police that everything was all right, prosecutor Maggie Pastuszak said.
As the officers began to leave, the woman screamed, “They’re beating each other with frying pans,” Pastuszak said.
The officers entered the home and found a man stumbling around holding his head, she said. Spencer was standing nearby holding a fork, she said. He dropped the fork and then turned around and put his hands behind his back.
