Rock Hill, South Carolina Police Department reports that a man, who assaulted another man with a large stick, is being held at York County Detention Center.  The 48-year-old man is charged with second-degree assault and battery.

It is alleged that the man assaulted a 38-year-old man because a woman was paying attention to the other man, and not him.  The victim reported to police that, while he was sleeping, the man began to strike him with a 3 foot long stick.  Further, it is reported that the victim was hit several times in the head, finally fleeing the home.  The aggressor was reported to be intoxicated at the time.
