STRUTHERS, Ohio (WKBN) – Struthers Police arrested two men Saturday evening after witnesses said they pulled their pants down and yelled obscenities at one another in a woman’s front yard, according to a police report.

Police arrested William Anderson, 54, and Michael Susak, 34, charging Anderson with disorderly conduct, public indecency and resisting arrest. Susak received charges of criminal damaging and public indecency.

Police received numerous calls regarding a large fight in the rear yard of 253 Maplewood Ave. in Struthers Saturday evening. One witness said that the argument started when Anderson knocked on a woman’s door, telling her to quit letting her dog urinate in his yard.

Anderson then exposed himself from the waist down, according to witnesses, and yelled obscenities to a number of people who had gathered near the house.

When Susak arrived, Anderson began yelling at him with his pants down, according to the report. Susak then lowered his pants and started yelling back at Anderson, according to the report.

The report states that witnesses then separated the two, and Susak ran over to Anderson’s porch, ripped an aluminum downspout off the house and threw it in the yard before fleeing the scene of the incident.

Officers arrested Anderson on his front porch after he gripped a chair he was sitting in to resist arrest, according to the report.

Susak arrived back at the scene as officers were leaving, and police arrested him as well.

Calls to both Susak and Anderson were not immediately returned.

Authorities released Susak after he posted $200 bond, according to the report. Anderson is still in the Mahoning Co. Jail as of Monday afternoon, according to the jail’s online records.
