Man attacks victim for speeding through parking lot

Attacker claims daughter plays in area

MARATHON, Fla. (AP) -  A man faces multiple charges after an attack on another man in the parking lot of a Florida Keys apartment complex.

Monroe County Sheriff's deputies say 27-year-old Raul Pavon stopped a vehicle that was driving through the Sea Grape apartment parking lot on Sunday afternoon. He jerked open the door, pulled the victim out and told him he was going to beat him.

Deputies say the victim's wife was pushed when she tried to intervene. Her mother called the sheriff's office for help.

Pavon told Deputy Grag LaRochelle that he attacked the victim because he was tired of him speeding through the parking lot where his daughter sometimes walks around.

Pavon remained in jail Monday, charged with two counts of battery, burglary to a vehicle and criminal mischief.
