Reward offered in Ponce City Market assault

A $2,000 reward was offered Thursday for information leading to the arrest and indictment of two men wanted in the assault of a manager at the City Winery inside Ponce City Market.

Police responded to a 911 call about a dispute at the North Avenue winery just after 9 p.m. Nov. 7, according to an Atlanta police incident report.

Nicholas Sparwath, the manager, told police the men, in their 20s, got intoxicated and yelled obscenities. Security escorted the men outside and they called for Sparwath to intervene, he said.

Sparwath told police that’s when the men punched him in his head and stomach, leaving him with a bruise above his left eye. Detailed descriptions of the two men were not released.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477 or Tipsters can remain anonymous.
