Lansing Man Recovering After Being Beaten With Baseball Bat

Posted: Updated:
LANSING TWP., MI (WLNS) - A Lansing township man is in the hospital tonight after nearly escaping a home after being beaten with a baseball bat.

It happened in the 1200 block of Weber Drive on Sunday, July 20.

As 6 News Francesca Amiker reports the hunt is on for the person police say tried to kill him.

Peace and quiet, that's how people who live in this Lansing neighborhood describe life here. But last night that description changed.

"There was quite a bit of blood in the home so it appears the victim did try to get out of the home,” said Kay Hoffman, Chief, Lansing Township Police.

Chief Kay Hoffman of Lansing Township police say a 31-year-old Mason man was visiting this home when another man came into the house and attacked him with a baseball bat.

The victim did try to get out of the home and may have been followed to different portions of the home. It was a pretty severe beating for my understanding in fact that's why we're classifying it as an attempted homicide,” said Chief Hoffman.

With severe head and facial injuries, the man ran two blocks and called 911, but when police arrived the suspect was gone.

"The suspect left in the victim’s car, which he did not have permission to take and we don't know exactly where he is at this time, but we do have some information on who he may be with, we're following up on at this time."

Police say the home is a revolving door with traffic and over the past few months they've received numerous complaints from neighbors about the homes' many residents.
