A man, 25, has been arrested for assault five months after a 40-year-old man was attacked when food was delivered to his building in the Liberty Village area.

Kevin Matthew Flanagan, 25, turned himself in to police on the morning of April 6.

Images of Flanagan had been released by police the day before.

The incident occurred Nov. 18, 2016 at about 8 p.m., police say

A man was delivering food to a building at East Liberty Street and Hanna Avenue when he asked a 40-year-old male tenant to allow him access in to the building, said Const. Jenifferjit Sidhu. The man reportedly denied entry to Flanagan but another tenant of the building let Flanagan in.

A heated altercation allegedly occurred between the delivery man and the 40-year-old who was then assaulted. The alleged assailant fled on foot.

Flanagan is charged with assault causing bodily harm. He is to appear in court at Old City Hall on May 23.
