Walled Lake police are investigating an assault and battery incident that resulted in one man being hospitalized.
The incident reportedly occurred on Sunday, April 15 in the 1700 block of East West Maple Road.
According to Walled Lake Police Department reports, when officers arrived at the scene they found a man lying in an apartment complex parking lot with his cell phone close to his face, which was reportedly covered with blood.
The man, who was reportedly barely coherent, managed to state that he had been beaten with a baseball bat.
Officers interviewed a couple standing nearby. The woman told police that the victim had been touching her and a fight ensued between her father and him. The father fled the scene immediately following the encounter, according to the police report.
The woman’s boyfriend told police that the victim had hurled objects at their apartment door and threatened them. The boyfriend said he became upset and punched the side of the garage rather than hitting the victim, but when police checked the garage wall, they found no damage. The boyfriend’s hand, however, was discolored.
The victim was transported to Henry Ford Hospital in West Bloomfield Township.
