A domestic dispute led to the arrest of a 45-year-old Tappan man and a 41-year-old Tappan woman early Saturday on assault charges, according to Orangetown Police.
The arrests of Sergio Ambrosi and Daisy Chaves stem from an 8:15 a.m. incident on Central Avenue in Tappan. When town officers went to their home to investigate a report of a disturbance, police said Chaves told them that Ambrosi became violent as he came home from a night out drinking.
Chaves complained that she was hit in the face by Ambrosi, cutting her lip and jaw and causing pain and swelling. Additionally, Chaves told police that Ambrosi had punched a hole in a wall and damaged a television.
Ambrosi was arrested and charged with third-degree assault, a misdemeanor, and third-degree criminal mischief, a felony. However, police said that Ambrosi also complained that Chaves hit him in the head and body more than a dozen times, causing cuts, scratches and pain.
Police said Chaves was also arrested, charged with third-degree assault.
They were both arraigned in Orangetown Town Court, with Chaves released pending a court hearing. Ambrosi was ordered held in the Rockland County Correctional Facility in New City on $1,000 bail pending a hearing.
