South City man accused of assault on neighbor on Christmas

You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch.

A South San Francisco man pleaded not guilty Monday to two felony charges of assault with a deadly weapon and a charge of criminal threats after being accused of throwing bricks and a butter knife at his neighbor and the neighbor’s 12-year-old son on Christmas Day, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.

Michael Angel Villa-Senor, 25, who reportedly has a history of verbal disputes with his neighbor, is alleged to have confronted the neighbor as he returned home about 11 p.m. Thursday, Wagstaffe said.

The neighbor was unloading gifts from his car when Villa-Senor reportedly walked up to him. The neighbor told Villa-Senor to go away and an argument started.

During the argument, Villa-Senor allegedly picked up a brick from the garage and heaved it at the victim, Wagstaffe said. The victim’s son reportedly tried to warn his father, which allegedly prompted Villa-Senor to throw a butter knife at the boy.

Both the brick and knife missed their marks, Wagstaffe said.

Villa-Senor allegedly grabbed another brick and threatened to kill the father before throwing it at him. Again, Villa-Senor missed.

Then, out of nowhere, Villa-Senor’s brother appeared and reportedly started punching the father in the face several times, Wagstaffe said. Another neighbor heard the ruckus and called police, who came and broke up the fight.

It is unknown if Villa-Senor’s brother faces any charges.

Villa-Senor was in court Monday and pleaded not guilty, Wagstaffe said. He remains in custody on $50,000 bail and is scheduled to return to court Jan. 9.
