A Buffalo man has been charged with attacking another man early Thursday outside Jim’s Steakout on West Chippewa Street.

Walter Williams III, 29, of French Street, is accused of punching Shawn M. Epps of Allenhurst Road, Amherst, in the eye during a fight at 3:10 a.m. He also is accused of fighting with officers who said they had to handcuff him when he resisted arrest.

Williams was charged with third-degree assault, resisting arrest, second-degree harassment and second-degree obstruction of governmental administration.

At about the same time and location, Michael A. Robinson, 25, who listed the same Allenhurst Road address as Epps, was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge for fighting and hitting an unidentified person in the face.
