Police: Man knocked out at birthday party

A Salisbury man was arrested Wednesday after he reportedly punched another man in the face at a birthday party, knocking him out.
Salisbury Police reported Amer Willie Hosch, Sr., was attending a family birthday party on the property of Catawba College Feb. 19 when he got into an argument with party goer Keith Davidson. The report said Hosch tried to fight Davidson, so Davidson attempted to leave the party with his wife.
Hosch confronted Davidson just as he and his wife were approaching their car, hit Davidson in the face, knocking him to the ground, unconscious.
Police and EMS were called to the scene, and Davidson was taken to Rowan Regional Medical Center.
The arrest warrant stated that Davidson had to have reconstructive surgery to his face after the hit by Hosch, which left a half-inch laceration to Davidson’s cheek that went through the flesh and left a hole in his face. Davidson’s tooth was also cracked.
After an investigation by the police department, a warrant was issued for Hosch’s arrest April 3 and served Thursday.
Hosch was charged with felony assault inflicting serious injury and was given a $500 secured bond.
