Police: Springdale man beat another man with nunchucks

SPRINGDALE, Ohio -- Police say a Springdale man beat up another man with nunchucks and is scheduled for arraignment Thursday in a Hamilton County courtroom.

Alonzo Cornist, 19, is charged with aggravated assault after investigators say he struck Warren Grevious multiple times in the head, face and shoulder with nunchucks on Sept. 13.

Court documents show Grevious was the passenger in a vehicle driven by his girlfriend, Laticia Gover. The couple drove to Cornist’s home on Eider Drive to pick up Gover’s daughter and Cornist then approached the vehicle and asked Grevious unusual questions about his stature, according to investigators.

When Grevious got out of the car to speak to Cornist, Cornist struck Grevious over the head with nunchucks, according to court documents.

Police say he continued to hit Grevious multiple times until the driver was able to get away.

Grevious was taken to the hospital where he received multiple stitches to close a head wound and was diagnosed with a fracture to his cheek and an injury to his left shoulder, according to investigators.

Cornist is charged with one count of aggravated assault.
