Deputies placed the man in handcuffs and transported him to jail.

His bail was set at $5,000 for fourth-degree assault.

Man hits kid ‘in self-defense’

A 42-year-old Poulsbo man was arrested for assaulting a juvenile Sept. 15.

When deputies arrived they noticed the juvenile’s shirt was torn and stretched out around the collar and fresh fingernail scratches around the neck area.

Deputies discovered the root of the issue stemmed from an earlier verbal fight that resulted in disabling the juvenile’s car.

After yelling escalated, the juvenile allegedly charged the man and they wrestled to the ground.

According to deputy reports, the man admitted to punching the juvenile in the eye “in self-defense.”

He was handcuffed and taken to jail. His bail was set at $5,000.
