NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. - Lee County detectives arrested a suspect in the North Fort Myers beating of a 75-year-old man Wednesday night.

55-year-old Kenneth Wood was arrested for the felony battery of Alex Dimitrelos.

The incident happened on September 9 at a laundry mat.  Wood has two prior arrests in Lee County, both for battery.

The fight started over the use of a dryer when the victim says Wood attacked him and smashed his cell phone when he tried to call 9-1-1 for help.

Crime Stoppers thanks the public for their quick response in helping identify Wood and the Lee County Sheriff's Office Major Crimes Unit for the quick arrest.
