A 35-year-old Menomonee Falls man is accused of slicing up another man’s head with a knife inside a West Milwaukee bar.
Matthew Kiedrowski was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court Friday with one count of substantial battery. If convicted, he faces up to 1 ½ years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
On Oct. 31, Kiedrowski was in New Elbow Room, 3812 W. Greenfield Ave., when he began to argue with another patron at the bar. During the course of the argument, Kiedrowski pulled out a knife and sliced the victim three times on top of his bald head.
West Milwaukee police officers were called to the bar and the victim was taken to a hospital where he needed 16 staples to close his wounds.
Kiedrowski was confronted by police at 6 a.m. at his Menomonee Falls home located in the W16000 block of Good Hope Road. He admitted to the incident and said he got the knife from his father 10 years ago.
He will make his initial appearance in court Dec. 20.
