Parking Dispute with a Woman Lands a Construction Worker in Jail

SAN RAFAEL — Finding a parking space can be frustrating but violence over aparking dispute is ridiculous. A construction worker is being held in custody ineligible for release on bond for an assault on a woman during a parking dispute.

The 33-year-old construction worker from San Francisco, Joshua Shuster-Lefkowitz is accused of attacking the victim. It seems she confronted the suspect for illegally parking his car in the middle of one-way Julia Street.

Shuster-Lefkowitz allegedly assaulted the victim with a skateboard, hitting her several times. In response, the victim told police she sprayed the suspect with pepper spray in an act of self-defense.

After being sprayed, the suspect allegedly retrieved a flare gun from his car and fired it in the direction of the victim. Then he left the area in a huff, but he didn’t get far.

The victim reported this ugly parking melee on September 7 at 5:15 a.m. San Rafael officers located and arrested the suspect downtown at 5:19 a.m., near the intersection of E and Third streets.

The woman who initially confronted the man suffered a minor scrape on her leg, and she declined any medical treatment.

Shuster-Lefkowitz was transported and booked into Marin County Jail. He remains in custody, pending a preliminary court hearing on September 24.

Shuster-Lefkowitz presently faces three open charges, including assault with a deadly weapon on the woman. In addition, he faces charges for battery on police and obstructing/resisting an officer.
