On Sept. 14, the Lower Moreland Police Department received a call from a resident who said his neighbor was verbally and physically harassing him after a dispute over trees on their property line on the 400 block of Lawrence Road.
The resident claims that while trimming trees on his property, his neighbor, Alfred Disandro, 70, of Huntingdon Valley, began to curse at him and eventually poked him with a stick through his fence.
Then, without warning, Disandro poked the handle of a rake or other similar object through the fence, striking the neighbor below the left eye and then on the lower part of his left cheek. Police did observe a slightly raised red mark just below his left eye.
According to the report, the neighbor and Disandro have had issues in the past regarding property lines, and it was discovered that the trees that were trimmed were resting on Disandro’s property, but the neighbor decided to take care of it for him since Disandro refused to keep up with the landscaping work.
