Men charged with fighting with leather belts

Posted August 29, 2010

— Two Chatham County men were arrested for fighting in a Raleigh street Saturday, according to arrest warrants.

The warrants state that Jose Alfredo Martinez Calderon, 20, and Romas Juan Manuel Montoya, 28, "did assault and strike each other by lashing each other with leather belts." The fight took place outside 2805 Industrial Drive, an area with popular bars and nightclubs.

Calderon, of 81 Hillside Lot 163 in Chapel Hill, and Montoya, of 196 N. Hillsboro St. in Pittsboro, were each charged with simple affray.

They were placed in the Wake County jail under separate $1,000 secured bonds. First court appearances were set for Sept. 24.
