Police: Man angry with neighbor attacked him
Police said a Leander man who was angry about the light his neighbor was using to fix a car at night punched him Saturday and cut him with a knife, according to an arrest affidavit.
Peter Luginbill, 53, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
Police were notified at 9:01 p.m. Saturday about the incident in the 700 block of Camino Real Drive in Leander, the affidavit said.
The victim said Luginbill and another man — who has not been charged — crossed the street yelling profanities against him and demanded he turn off a light he was using to work on a vehicle in his front yard, according to the affidavit.
The victim said Luginbill pinned him against the vehicle he was working on, struck him in the face and cut his left cheek with a knife, the affidavit said. The victim said the other man also hit him in the face, according to the document.
Luginbill was being held in the Williamson County Jail on Tuesday with bail set at $30,000.
