Brentwood Tenant Assaulted in Attempted Eviction

October 18, 2023

Police say an attempted eviction turned violent on Smith Road Saturday as a tenant was allegedly tied up and assaulted by a group of men at his home.

Brentwood Police Chief John Ventura said a group of four men in their early 30s appeared at the Smith Road home around 11 a.m.

Ventura said the men banged on the door and told the 67-year-old man he was no longer welcome and needed to leave.

He said three of the four men allegedly threw the tenant to the ground, taped his hands together with duct tape, and tied his feet with rope.

Ventura said the victim was held captive for some time by the men in his home.

They eventually untied and left him on the front lawn before leaving.
