WINCHESTER — Two men are being held without bond after allegedly fighting outside a city restaurant.

Sauel Castillo, 35, of Winchester, and Olvin Alverto Andino-Moncado, 28, of Martinsburg, W.Va., appeared separately Monday via video in Winchester General District Court.

Both were denied bond after being arrested early Friday morning.

According to a criminal complaint, a Winchester Police Department officer responded at about 1:40 a.m. to Mi Salvador, 930 Berryville Ave., for a report of a fight.

When the officer entered the business parking lot, he observed Andino-Moncado lying on the ground.

He then saw Castillo kick Andino-Moncado in the face approximately three times, “causing significant facial trauma,” according to the complaint.

The officer noted that Castillo smelled of alcohol and was unsteady and had glassy, bloodshot eyes.

He was also carrying a bag containing a “white substance” that he told the officer was cocaine, the complaint states.

Castillo was arrested at the scene and charged with malicious wounding, public intoxication and possession of cocaine.

According to a separate criminal complaint, a witness told a different officer that Andino-Moncado entered Mi Salvador with a machete.

He allegedly broke the door to the business with the knife and began assaulting a man inside, according to the complaint.

The officer reported that the machete had a blade that was 18 inches long.

Andino-Moncado was arrested and charged with brandishing a machete and breaking and entering.

It is unclear if the incidents are related.

Andino-Moncado is expected back in court at 10:30 a.m. Feb. 12. Castillo is next scheduled to appear at 2:30 p.m. March 19.
