Michael Stuart

The Peru man charged with roughing up an elderly couple has been indicted.

A grand jury Tuesday gave its approval to charging 43-year-old Michael Stuart with three felony counts of aggravated battery.  Stuart’s arrest came after a video went viral on social media. It shows a man shouting at an elderly couple on a Peru street. It’s hard to see at times, but it appears that the younger man shoves the elderly man and woman.  Peru Police Chief Doug Bernabei says the episode was a result of an ongoing neighbor dispute.

Stuart is out of custody after coming up with $3,000 bond.
