BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Police say an underwear-clad Pennsylvania man was severely beaten with a plastic Wiffle bat when he refused to put on clothes.
Bethlehem police said Monday that Donald Fehr suffered a broken jaw and fractured skull and lost several teeth in the Aug. 17 attack.
Police say Fehr was sitting on his porch in his underwear when he was approached by 19-year-old Hector Morales Jr. and two other men. Morales told Fehr his girlfriend was coming over, and said Fehr was "being disrespectful" and told him to put some clothes on. When Fehr refused, Morales allegedly assaulted him with the bat, then began punching Fehr when the bat broke.
Morales was charged with aggravated assault and related offenses. Police say he's in Berks County Prison on unrelated charges. It's not clear whether he has a lawyer. - AP
