Newark gang assault suspect pleads guilty

One of three people arrested following a brawl that injured two security guards at a Newark bar has pleaded guilty.

Wayne County District Attorney Mike Calarco said Kyle Lucieer, 21, pleaded guilty Wednesday in county court to two counts of second-degree gang assault. The charges are class C felonies punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

Lucieer is scheduled to be sentenced April 17 by Judge Rick Healy. Calarco said he could not discuss specifics of the case because two other defendants in the case, Kamel Davis and Lawrence Rogers Jr., still have gang assault charges in court.

The incident at Tommy Boy’s started about 2 a.m. Aug. 11. One of the establishment’s two security guards, Devin Hall, was attacked trying to break up a fight between two customers in the parking lot.

By the time Newark police, Wayne County deputies and state troopers arrived, multiple people were fighting in the parking lot. Those involved fled the scene, but Newark Police Chief Mark Thoms said police were able to identify those that assaulted the two security guards, both of whom suffered serious injuries.
