L.I. Man Arrested in Table Leg Assault

A Long Island man is accused of breaking into a home and attacking the resident with a wooden table leg.
 
Nassau County police say Albert Garfield, 47, allegedly crashed through the fence in the driveway of the victim's Bethpage house around 8 a.m. Thursday. He then allegedly kicked in the door of the house and started beating the 50-year-old victim.
 
The victim was treated at a hospital for multiple contusions and abrasions to his head. 

The suspect ran off and later stole a 2007 Kia from a 50-year-old woman who was waiting to have her car serviced at a dealership, police said.

Police caught up with him when he got into a car accident near the Southern State Parkway in North Massapequa. 

 
Garfield was charged with assault, grand larceny, criminal possession of a weapon and driving while ability impaired by drugs. Information on an attorney wasn't immediately available.
