Scott Stage, 46, of Parma, was picked up Saturday on an assault charge, a second-degree felony, three days after police executed search warrants at the Cleveland chapter headquarters of Hell’s Angels on Edna Avenue and at a nearby property on Wednesday.

Montville police arrested Justin Seliskar, 31, of 651 Sturbridge Drive, No. 20, at his home Wednesday. He is a suspect in the same alleged assault, which police say occurred Sept. 3 in Montville Township.

According to police, Stage and Seliskar are members of the Cleveland chapter of Hell’s Angels.

The assault victim reportedly was being warned to stay off a road in Montville with his group of motorcycle enthusiasts, called The Coffin Cheaters, according to court records.

The Medina County Prosecutor’s Office is requesting an additional charge of participating in a gang against Stage and Seliskar. It also is seeking a joint trial for both to “conserve state resources and to minimize safety concerns for civilian witnesses,” according to court documents.

Seliskar is in the county jail on $1 million bond on a count of complicity to commit felonious assault, a second-degree felony.

Both men were indicted by a Medina County grand jury on Nov. 23.
