BECKLEY - A Beckley man wanted for assault with a tire iron was arrested three days after the alleged crime.
Richard Steven Maniece, 20, was arrested Sunday by the Beckley Police Department for charges including battery, unlawful wounding and assault.
The charges stem from an incident on Thursday when Maniece allegedly blocked his girlfriend's car with his own and walked toward her and two others with the tire iron, according to authorities.
Maniece is accused of striking one man on the side of the head, then hitting his girlfriend with it on the arm.
The incident happened in Beckley near Third Avenue and Bird Street.
