    Police: Debt leads to assault, robbery

    BENNINGTON ó Police said a robbery victim was able to identify his assailant because the victim owed his attacker money for a drug deal.

    Friday, Bennington police responded to Bank Street and spoke with a man who said he had been punched in the face and had his cellphone stolen by Ziyaad Madany, 21, of Bennington, according to police.

    The victim told police he owed Madany money from a narcotic purchase several years ago. Police charged Madany with assault and robbery. He is currently being held in Rutland jail and is scheduled to appear today in Bennington criminal court.
