A Florida man with a swastika tattoo on his neck was arrested after he allegedly attacked his roommate, severely beating the man in a possible dispute over their television service, according to police records.
Michael Sobon, 57, allegedly went after his roommate when he came home just before 11 p.m. Saturday, the man told Orlando Police.
The alleged victim told cops that Sobon repeatedly punched him without any provocation, kicking him in the face and head after he fell down during the attack, an arrest affidavit filed by OPD said.
Police said the man had “numerous severe injuries to his face and head,” noting in the report that he was bleeding heavily, his eyes were “significantly swollen and his nose seemed to be out of place.”
The man was rushed to a local hospital.
His condition was not immediately known.
Sobon told police he and his roommate argued over their television service and money the man allegedly owed him, claiming that he eventually got “fed up” with his roommate and canceled their service.
Sobon denied that he and his roommate ever got into a physical altercation, but police wrote that he had fresh blood on his shoes, “which would be consistent with kicking [the roommate] in the face and head.”
He also had a small scratch over his right eye and several scratches on his hands, which cops said indicated a physical altercation took place.
Sobon, who the arrest report notes has a swastika tattoo on his neck, was charged with aggravated battery resulting in serious bodily harm, officials said.
He was taken to the Orange County Jail, where he was being held Tuesday on $3,500 bail.
