Indicted in parking assault

Oscar Fuller, 35, right, was indicted for assault on Mon., March 7, for punching a woman and knocking her unconscious on Feb. 25 in a dispute over an E. 14th St. curbside parking space. The victim, Lana Rosas, 25, who was holding the space outside 520 E. 14th St. for her boyfriend when the incident began at 11:40 p.m., has been in a coma since then and may have permanent brain damage, police said. Fuller drove off after the incident, leaving Rosas on the pavement bleeding from the head, police said. He was arrested later that night at his Queens home. Fuller was freed on $100,000 pending an April 7 court appearance. He said he punched the 4-foot-11-inch-tall victim as a reflex action after she punched first. Fuller has previous arrests for weapons possession and felony assault.
