Manchester man charged in early morning baseball bat attack
MANCHESTER - A 30-year-old Manchester man was being held by city police Sunday afternoon after allegedly attacking another man with a baseball bat at Somerville and Cypress streets earlier in the day.
The victim has been admitted to Elliot Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. His name was not immediately released.
Sean Shaw, of McGuigan Avenue, was arrested after he became embroiled in an argument with the victim at about 4 a.m. Police said it did not appear that the two were involved in any kind of domestic-related dispute or drug transaction, but the incident appeared to be "two guys with a beef."
Shaw has been charged with first degree assault. No bail had been set at mid-afternoon Sunday as detectives continued to work on the case.
