FRAMINGHAM, Mass.—A Framingham man is facing an assault charge for allegedly hitting a town hall custodian on the back of the head with a roll of toilet paper he threw because he was angry the man was whistling while he worked.

Framingham police say 55-year-old Allen Kerner was in town hall Wednesday using the bathroom. The custodian, not realizing anyone was in the restroom, whistled as he replenished the toilet paper rolls.

The custodian told police he was in a stall when struck. Kerner yelled at him about whistling and fled. Kerner, pursued by the custodian, was apprehended by police outside.

Police tell The MetroWest Daily News that Kerner will be summoned to court to face an assault and battery charge. A number for Kerner could not immediately be located.
