A Lorain man arrested after allegedly hitting a man in the head with a funeral urn.

Cops were called to a home in the 1100 block of Oberlin Avenue in Lorain around 2 a.m. Friday morning for a fight.

Once on scene, an officer witnessed Joel Perez throw an urn at a man, hitting him in the head. The victim was rushed to the hospital with profuse bleeding.
