According to the criminal complaint, police were called to 460 Park Ave. in Burlington at about 12:20 a.m. April 8 for an assault in which the perpetrators fled in a Cadillac Escalade.

A man at the scene who was also struck during the altercation said Thomas Sobbe and Lasley pulled up in front of the house and began to hit, kick and stomp on the victim, according to the complaint. The victim said Lasley and Thomas Sobbe hit him in the head, knocking him unconscious, the complaint states. He was confused, unsteady on his feet and complaining of pain.

Police obtained video of the incident that showed Thomas Sobbe continuing to kick and stomp on the man’s torso after he’s unconscious, according to the complaint. Thomas Sobbe can be seen kicking the man in the back of the head, and Kenneth Sobbe is seen on the video punching and stomping on the man’s torso, according to the complaint.

A woman who was at the scene said the fight was about the man who was assaulted reportedly having sex with Kenneth Sobbe’s girlfriend, the complaint states.

Kenneth Sobbe was under bond conditions at the time on misdemeanor charges of battery, disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia.
