Toledo man indicted for allegedly hitting teen with baseball bat, strangling her
TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - A Toledo man was indicted Thursday after police say he hit a teenager with a baseball bat and strangled her.
A Lucas County Grand Jury indicted William Sewell, 38, of Toledo, on Felonious Assault and Strangulation charges on Thursday.
The police affidavit alleges Sewell hit a 16-year-old in the head with a baseball bat on Nov. 11 and put his hands around her neck, pushing her against a wall and squeezing to the point where she couldn’t breathe. Investigators say that the teen had to get at least five staples staples in her head from the baseball bat injuries.
A municipal court judge previously set his bond at $200,000 across both charges.
