Rodriguez Bembo
A Niagara County Jail inmate was accused of assaulting another inmate when he couldn't hear his girlfriend on the phone.

According to a report filed by the Niagara County Sheriff's Office, the complainant was sitting near the phone in POD number two while Rodriguez Bembo, 42, 235 Washington St., Lockport, was using the phone to talk to his girlfriend around 5 p.m Monday. The complaint and Bembo got into an argument because Bembo said he couldn't hear his phone conversation.

The complainant stated "that he was then struck in the left eye by Bembo with a closed fist or the phone," the report states.

The complainant said that he and Bembo began to wrestle around on the floor when a swarm of correction officers stormed into the POD and broke the two of them up. The complainant said that Bembo head butted him in the nose as the correction officers were breaking them apart. Patrol observed heavy swelling around the left eye of the complainant.

Patrol turned over the depositions from both the corrections officer and complainant to a Niagara County Sheriff's investigator, who advised patrol that the complainant's injuries would have to be assessed before a charge is placed against Bembo.
