An argument between co-workers at a Spring Valley auto repair shop ended with one of them hitting the other in the head with a hammer.

Juan Carlos Paredes-Gonzalez., 41, of the Village of Spring Valley, was arrested following the assault around 4:50 p.m. Wednesday at Dutch Auto at 162 E. Route 59, said Spring Valley Officer Matthew Galli.

When police responded to the shop they found a worker who had a large cut on his head after being hit with a hammer during a dispute with Paredes-Gonzalez, Galli said.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for his head injury, which were considered not life-threatening, Galli said.

Paredes-Gonzalez was charged with felony assault and has been released from police custody.
