Baseball Bat Assault in Rockville

On July 15, 2016 a Sergeant from the Bates County Sheriff’s Office took a report of an assault that had occurred at the ballfield in Rockville, MO. 

While the victim had been watching a ballgame a subject approached the victim carrying a baseball bat. 

The male subject swung the bat and hit the victim in the face knocking him to the ground. The subject then jumped in a car and fled the scene. The victim was taken to a hospital in Eldorado Springs to seek treatment.

The Sergeant contacted the Eldorado Springs Police Department and asked an Officer to respond to the hospital and take a statement from the victim. The Eldorado Springs Officer made contact with the victim who had severe injuries to his face as well as a broken jaw.

No charges were filed against the suspect because he is now deceased.
