Officers with the Monaca Borough Police Department have made an arrest in connection with a brutal beating outside of the Blue Steel that was caught on tape.
Larance Armoni Lowe, 22 of Aliquippa, was arrested at his home earlier today. Lowe has been charged with aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person, and disorderly conduct for his alleged role in an attack on 32 year old Patrick Castellano of Industry.
A cellphone video provided to the Beaver Countian by a witness of the assault shows Castellano being drop kicked in the head, and a second video taken moments later shows the man laying unconscious and bloody while a group of people continue to violently attack him. Castellano was transported by ambulance to the hospital where he was admitted. The man was released yesterday morning and is expected to make a full recovery.
The incident occurred early Thanksgiving morning outside of the Blue Steel, which has come under heavy criticism by members of the community due to a string of incidents originating from the club.
Along with Larance Lowe, court records show that Magisterial District Judge Dale Nicholson has also signed arrest warrants for Craig Rawl Jr., 21 of New Brighton, and Marlo Dame Cleckley Jr., 21 of Beaver Falls, for their alleged involvement in the attack.
Readers of the Beaver Countian helped to identify some of the suspects and witnesses to the assault after video of the attack was released by this publication.
