Pipe Attack

Posted on 26th August 2014 at 08:49

Second-degree domestic violence assault charges are being filed against 60 year-old Javier Meza Aguilar of Kelso, after he allegedly used a pipe or some sort of metal bar to beat 35 year-old Joshua Morrison last night at an apartment on Florence Avenue in Kelso. Kelso Police and aid personnel were called to the apartment in the 100 block of Florence at about 8:20 pm, where it was reported that Morrison was bleeding from the head. Officers interviewed several people, eventually learning that Aguilar and his wife live in the apartment, along with Aguilar’s daughter and Morrison. Apparently an argument over “door-slamming” escalated, with Aguilar allegedly using the piece of metal to strike Morrison in the head. Aguilar is currently being held without bail in the Cowlitz County Jail, while Morrison was taken to St. John Medical Center for treatment.
