At 12:19 am on Sunday, officers responded to a fight in the 700 block of Percy St involving 4 or 5 people.  Witnesses reported one of the men was armed with a bat or club.  At the scene, officers learned a man had kicked in the door of a residence shortly after his family members were kicked out.  The man was armed with a  bat and swung it people in the residence, striking one person in the face resulting in injuries that required treatment at the hospital.   The man was subdued by others in the residence prior to police arriving.  A 42 year old Brandon man will appear in court on Sunday  on charges of Break, Enter and Commit Assault, Assault with a Weapon, and Aggravated Assault.
