The Buffalo News - - LOCAL NEWS -

Ni­a­gara Falls Po­lice are seek­ing a 19-yearold man who al­legedly broad­cast an as­sault via Face­book Live on his vic­tim’s cell­phone about 8 p.m. Satur­day.

After calls from peo­ple who wit­nessed the at­tack on­line, po­lice went to the 500 block of Sixth Street and, fol­low­ing a trail of blood to an up­stairs apart­ment, found a 21-year-old Youngstown man cov­ered in blood.

He was taken to Ni­a­gara Falls Me­mo­rial Med­i­cal Cen­ter with a pos­si­ble bro­ken jaw and fa­cial frac­tures, po­lice said.

A woman there told po­lice the vic­tim was vis­it­ing her boyfriend and made ad­vances to­ward her.

The vic­tim told po­lice the at­tacker pis­tol-whipped him, then took his boots and wore them while stomp­ing his head. Po­lice said they found a pel­let gun on the kitchen counter.
