ABERDEEN, Md. (WMAR) -
People who live in Aberdeen are all too familiar to the sound of a baseball cracking against a bat, but the Harford County Sheriff's office responded to a call on Tuesday that involved a baseball bat and a man’s head.
Deputies responded to the 900 block of North Stepney Road after receiving a report of a person being hit with a baseball bat.
Once crews arrived, they found Dion Lee Kuhn lying in the yard near his home, bleeding from his head.
Kuhn was transported by helicopter and treated at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center.
Through a criminal investigation, officers found that two suspects were responsible for this bloody attack.
The attackers, Michael Hawley of the 200 block of Golf Drive in Aberdeen and Keven Sparks of the 1700 block of Cedar Crest Court in Edgewood, have been charged with first degree assault.
Neither of the suspects have been taken into police custody, but there are warrants out for their arrests.
