St. Cloud Man Charged in Baseball Bat Attack [VIDEO]
ST. CLOUD -- A St. Cloud man faces an assault charge after another man said he was attacked with a baseball bat.
Twenty-nine-year-old Michael Adrian is accused of waiting outside his apartment building and confronting another tenant. The incident happened Tuesday night just before midnight in the 4100 block of 12th Street North.
The victim said Adrian began shaking the bat in his face and asking about some money he was owed. The man said Adrian swung the bat at him, hitting him several times in the leg.
Police arrived and viewed surveillance footage showing the assault and also showing Adrian walking back into his apartment with the bat over his shoulder.
A search warrant of Adrian's apartment uncovered the baseball bat. Police say Adrian was also wearing the same clothes as depicted in the surveillance video.
