Man accused of hitting woman in head with shovel

A Connecticut man faces assault charges after police said he hit a woman in the head with a shovel.

Police said Kirk Lisica got into an argument with the victim, then threw a shovel like a spear off his third-floor porch, hitting her in the head.

After Lisica was brought to the police station, officers said he trashed his cell, threw food around, broke a security camera and urinated on the floor.

The woman was treated and released at Hartford Hospital.
