A 51-year-old Mankato man is charged for an alleged assault involving a block of concrete.
Jonathan Len Hall is charged in Blue Earth County Court with felony counts of assault with a dangerous weapon.
According to the criminal complaint, police were called to a report of a brick assault, where they found the alleged victim holding Hall in a chokehold.
Police then found a piece of concrete on the ground and saw wounds on the alleged victim, according to the complaint.
The court documents say the two men apparently had issues with their children playing together the previous day that required law enforcement intervention.
The victim told police that he and Hall were neighbors and that Hall accused him of calling his wife racial slurs before asking him to fight each other on their property line.
