Olympia police arrested a 21-year-old man Thursday who is accused of hitting another man in the head with a baseball bat.

Police were called at about 6 a.m. to a wooded area near the 3200 block of Pacific Avenue Southeast for a report of an assault. Police say a man with “significant head injuries” told them he was hit in the head with a baseball bat.

The suspect was booked into the Thurston County jail on suspicion of first-degree assault while armed with a deadly weapon.

The victim was taken to Providence St. Peter Hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
