As the repo men were leaving the house, a man, identified by police as Michael Norley, blocked their vehicle in and approached them with a metal bar in one hand, according to court documents.
Norley, 56, of West Chester, allegedly struck one of the men on his head, face and leg with the metal bar, sending him to the ground, and then allegedly hit the other on his head, neck and arm when he tried to stop him.
That's when Kaufman came out of his house with a baseball bat, hit one of the repo men in his chest and head, and held him up against his car to stop him from helping his co-worker, police said.
When cops arrived, they found the two repo men with "fresh blood" on their faces and numerous injuries to their heads, necks and arms, according to court documents.
Kaufman and Norley were charged with aggravated assault, simple assault and harassment. Their relationship wasn't immediately clear from court documents.
Police said the metal bar Norley allegedly used to beat the men was found in his car covered with blood. Norley was also found to be driving while his license was suspended, according to court documents.
Kaufman was indicted by the U.S. Attorney's Office last month for allegedly not filing a legitimate tax return since the early 1990s.
Messages left by the Daily News at his home and business yesterday were not returned, and a number listed for Norley was not in service.
