Frankford man found beaten to death

A Frank­ford man died after po­lice found him un­con­scious on a Kens­ing­ton Street, the vic­tim of an ap­par­ent street-corner beat­ing early Sat­urday.

Of­ficers were called to Em­er­ald and Cam­bria streets at about 5:30 a.m. in re­sponse to a re­port of a per­son with a weapon. They found Roberto Perez, 41, of the 1600 block of Fill­more St., ly­ing in the street un­re­spons­ive and with trau­mat­ic head in­jur­ies. Para­med­ics pro­nounced him dead at the scene.

Ac­cord­ing to one pub­lished re­port, wit­nesses told po­lice that Perez was in­volved in an ar­gu­ment, dur­ing which someone beat him in the head with a crow­bar. Perez’s Chev­ro­let Sub­urb­an was parked at the scene and had a broken win­dow. Po­lice have made no ar­rests and named no sus­pects. ••
